Reporting of Perceived Bias:
Bias is defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA) as preferential influence that causes a distortion of opinion or of facts.  Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.)  This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased.
The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence of actual or perceived bias in continuing education.  Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the educational activity.  The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730.
