The 26th International Prostate Cancer Update (IPCU 26), being held January 20-23, 2016, in Vail Colorado, will be a Sunshine-exempt, CME-accredited educational program.  As such, it will meet the following requirements: (1) the provider and program is accredited, (2) no direct payments are allowed between CME supporters and physician faculty, and (3) CME supporters have no role in directing, suggesting, or implementing how the proceeds of the grant are used by the CME provider.
