New AMA conflict of interest guidelines released
The AMA has recently released guidelines to assist doctors with appropriately identifying and managing actual and potential conflicts of interest in the practice of medicine.
These guidelines are new and are intended to enable doctors to uphold public trust and confidence in the profession through the proper management of conflicts of interest in medicine. They address the topic of potential conflicts of interest, outlining that while there is nothing inherently wrong with having a conflict, it is important that doctors are able to recognise and respond to them appropriately.
The guidelines are detailed here and can also be viewed at: https://ama.com.au/position-statement/guidelines-doctors-managing-conflicts-interest-medicine-2018
