The audience, however, must be informed of this relationship prior to the start of the activity and any potential conflict must be resolved in order to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor at all programs. It remains for the audience to determine whether the speaker’s interest or relationship influenced the presentation with regard to exposition or conclusion.
