New guidelines for doctors' relationships with industry
The AMA has released new guidelines on doctors’ relationships with industry, an area of increasing but necessary interaction in our modern technological health system.
Doctors must work collaboratively with commercial entities directly involved in health care, however, patient care must always be the top priority.
This is particularly the case when the doctor benefits financially from the collaboration, AMA President, Dr Tony Bartone, said today.
“The overriding principle guiding doctors’ relationships with industry is the primacy of patient care,” Dr Bartone said.
