Industry Relations Message
Continuing medical education is one of the most important and
well-regarded member services provided by the American Academy
of Neurology (AAN). The Annual Meeting is the AAN’s premier
continuing medical education event. It is internationally recognized in
the neurologic community for the quality of its education and scientific
programs as well as many networking opportunities.
The AAN benefits from its relationship with corporate sponsors who
provide financial support for a variety of Annual Meeting events and
programs. The AAN recognizes members’ concerns regarding industry
involvement in the Annual Meeting and the potential for commercial
bias, overt, or otherwise. The AAN annually reviews and revises
its guidelines that govern industry participation to ensure that they
are appropriate, comprehensive, and unambiguous. The AAN’s zero
tolerance policy for any real or perceived commercial bias in AAN
education or scientific programs is the fundamental and unwavering
principle that guides its interactions with industry.
Note: All programs have limited enrollment. Register early to ensure your selection.
with infractions and perceptions of bias in a rigorous and impartial
manner, the Committee frequently seeks input on these issues from
the AAN’s Ethics, Law, and Humanities Committee.
The AAN values its relationship with industry. However, the AAN
cannot and will not compromise the independence and credibility
of its programs through its relationships with corporate sponsors.
Appropriate guidelines and input from attendees are essential
components of managing these relationships so that the AAN
maintains its integrity as an organization and the confidence of the
medical profession.
The AAN’s Annual Meeting policies and processes are based on, and
closely follow, guidelines established by the Accreditation Council for
Continuing Medical Education, American Medical Association, and US
Food and Drug Administration.
Programs at the Annual Meeting are developed and implemented
solely by the AAN’s Education Committee, Science Committee, their
respective subcommittees, and AAN staff. Industry has absolutely
no role in selecting program topics, faculty and directors, or planning
program content. Industry influence or promotion on slides or
computer-based presentations is prohibited, and any use of product
brand names should be avoided. All speakers must personally disclose,
in writing, any actual or perceived relationships with industry,
regardless of whether these relate to a specific presentation or not.
These disclosures are published in Neurology ® and AAN Annual
Meeting publications. Industry and presenters are required to sign
letters of agreement explicitly stating that they understand and
will adhere to the AAN guidelines. The AAN Foundation sponsors a
Corporate Roundtable, comprised of representatives from both the
AAN and industry, which promotes awareness of, and compliance
with, the AAN’s policies governing industry participation in the Annual
Meeting and other activities.
The great majority of the AAN’s industry supporters and presenters
abide by the AAN guidelines, but occasional infractions do occur.
Although most of these are minor, the AAN’s zero-tolerance policy
specifies sanctions for those who violate its guidelines. In addition,
the AAN has revised all education and scientific evaluation forms
to provide attendees with an opportunity to report any perceived
commercial bias. Although the Meeting Management Committee deals

NIH Sponsored Clinical Trials in Neurology:
What’s Going On? How to Participate?
How Can We Do Better?
1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.
The National Institutes of Health is the world’s largest funding agency
for medical research. In the amount of research dollars going to major
areas, neuroscience research is second only to cancer. The final goal
of the taxpayer’s investment in neuroscience research is clinical trials
that test new therapies. Many trials are performed by industry based
upon NIH funded neuroscience discoveries, but many are funded by the
NIH. The program will review NIH clinical trials currently in progress or
just completed. A major new emphasis has been placed on obtaining
evidence to inform medical decision-making, so called comparative
effectiveness research. The focus will be on how the results of
these trials might impact practice and also to obtain feedback
from practitioners on what are the major questions that need to be
addressed by future trials.
Free to all attendees.
New! Platform Session Times
1:45 p.m.–3:45 p.m.

Weather/Attire
The climate in Toronto in early spring is generally cool and damp.
In April, temperatures usually range from 42 degrees to 70 degrees
Fahrenheit. It can be quite wet, so a waterproof coat and umbrella are
a good idea, as are layered clothing and a good jacket.
The AAN promotes business casual attire for the duration of the
Annual Meeting. Consider bringing a light jacket or sweater to Annual
Meeting activities since meeting room temperatures and personal
comfort levels vary.

Booking your room through the official AAN housing company assures
you are getting a room at the hotel that best fits your needs. You
are also helping the AAN maintain consistent and competitive and
registration fees. The reason is simple. When a city is selected as the
site for the AAN Annual Meeting, contracts are signed with several
hotels reserving a specific number of rooms to be available for meeting
attendees. If these rooms are not sold, the AAN is liable financially.
Penalties incurred affect the overall costs of the Annual Meeting
and what the AAN charges for registration, exhibit space, and
other services.
Smoking room
Note: Special requests are forwarded to the hotels for their
consideration and are subject to availability.
Blocks of 10 or more sleeping rooms are considered a group. Fax your
written request to (415) 979-2260 or email to [email protected]
and you will be contacted by an AAN Housing Consultant.

2011 Annual Meeting: Honolulu
The AAN invites you to submit an Education Program suggestion for the 63rd Annual Meeting, April 9 through
April 16, 2011, in Honolulu. Proposals for new programs are due by May 13, 2010.
Submit a proposal via the Annual Meeting website at www.aan.com/am.
For questions or more information on the Annual Meeting Education Program, contact Amy Nostdahl at
[email protected] or (651) 332-8687.
Here are some important things to
keep in mind when planning your trip:
Travel Documents/Passports and Entry Requirements
Visitors must have valid travel documents/passports to enter Canada
to provide proof of their citizenship. Document requirements vary
depending from which country you are traveling, the reason for your
visit, and the length of your stay, and may include passport or a birth
certificate, photo ID, and/or a visa. Learn more about travel documents
and requirements at www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/index.asp or
www.toronto.ca/metropolis/english/usefulinfo.htm#customs.
NOTE: Special No-Fee Passports for US Federal
Government Employees
In order to attend the Annual Meeting on business, it may be
necessary for US government employees to obtain an official
United States government no-fee passport from their appropriate
agency office. Government employees should contact the
appropriate office within their agency to discuss proposed
dates of attendance and to confirm whether or not they will
need this official passport.
Currency
Toronto’s currency is the Canadian Dollar; currency exchange is
available at banks and kiosks throughout the city and at the airport.
•For denominations under five dollars, the currency is coins
•US dollars are accepted in most Toronto establishments; however
you will receive change in Canadian funds and exchange rates will
differ from merchant to merchant
•Cash machines/ATMs are available in most banks, hotels, and
shopping centers; please note that ATMs at the airport only accept
ATM cards with the MasterCard logo on them
IMPORTANT NOTE: Don’t forget to call your bank and credit card
companies to let them know you will be traveling to Canada.
Customs, Immigration, and Admissibility
Upon entering Canada, you will be required to go through
customs and immigration. Before you land, your flight crew will
distribute a Travelers’ Customs Declaration Card for you to
complete; Declaration Cards are also available at the airport
upon your arrival. For more information, visit
www.toronto.ca/metropolis/english/usefulinfo.htm#customs.
Anyone with a criminal record (including a drunk driving conviction)
may be excluded from entering Canada. If you were convicted of
or committed a criminal offence outside Canada, you may overcome
this criminal inadmissibility by applying for rehabilitation or you may
be deemed to have been rehabilitated if at least ten years have
passed since you completed the sentence imposed upon you, or
since you committed the offence, if the offence is one that would,
in Canada, be an indictable offence punishable by a maximum term
of imprisonment of less than ten years. For more information, visit
www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/guides/5312ETOC.asp.
Health Insurance
Be sure to check with your health insurance provider about policy
coverage away from home—particularly if you're insured by an HMO
and/or Medicare/Medicaid.
Luggage
Restrictions for carry-on baggage policies and weight and size
limits for checked baggage are different for international flights
than for domestic flights. Be sure to check with your individual
carrier as to weight and measurement restrictions and associated
costs for overages.
Measurements
Canada uses the metric system for weights and measures. If you
choose to drive in Canada, be aware the speed limits are posted
in kilometers per hour instead of miles per hour.
Medication
If you are entering Canada with prescription drugs and syringes:
keep the medication in its original, labeled container; include medical
certificate with syringes showing they are for medical use and
have them declared to Canadian Customs officials; bring an extra
prescription in case your medication is lost and/or to attest to your
need to take such prescriptions; and carry the generic name of
prescription medicines.
Mobile Phone Service
Contact your service provider directly to inquire if service is available
and/or the applicable rates.
Safety
Toronto’s universal number for police, fire, and medical
emergencies is 911.
Tax Rates and Tax Rebates
Most goods and services sold or provided in Canada are subject to the
5% Goods and Services Tax (GST). In Toronto (Province of Ontario),
goods are also subject to an additional 8% Provincial Sales Tax (PST).
When you leave Canada, you may be eligible for a tax refund on the
goods you bought in Canada if you export them within 60 days. For
more information, ask for a copy of the publication called Tax Refund
for Visitors to Canada from the Canada Revenue Agency at
www.cra-arc.gc.ca/menu-e.html or call (800) 66VISIT (1-800-668-4748).
Time Zone
Toronto is in the Eastern Time Zone (the same as Detroit, New York,
and Florida).
