[Correspondence] Transparency in continuing medical education – Author’s reply
We agree with Graham McMahon that some of the statements in our Comment1 were broad. We have issued a correction to our Comment regarding the reporting requirements of joint provider activities under the Sunshine Act. We wrote our commentary in the spirit of academic freedom, and some statements were theoretical and not empirical. However, the comments that were stated as factual were cited. We aimed to inform physicians of potential risks in the way that continuing medical education (CME) activities are funded and of potential risks that remain in the current funding structure.
