Swine flu & conflict of interest

There is an interesting editorial in this month's Journal of Public Health that looks at conflicts of interest with regards to the swine flu pandemic. The author briefly describes some examples of organizations that manage financial and intellectual conflicts quite well. It's worth reading and the full text can be viewed here.

  1. I liked the passage from the article that reads: As Friedman points out, ‘there is no moral or ethical failing in having a conflict of interest; the problem occurs when conflicts are not disclosed appropriately and when conflicts are allowed to bias research, teaching or practice’"

    I like the 3-point ACCP plan.
