Ethical Aspects of Conflicts of Interest
The identification and management of conflicts of interests (COIs) is of great importance for The Endocrine Society and its relationship with the broader community. The Ethics Advisory Committee, in consultation with Council and other Society committees, has developed Ethical Aspects of Conflicts of Interest, a detailed review of the nature and extent of COIs and how to deal with them.
The review includes information on conflicts of interest both for the organization at large as well as for individual clinician and researcher members. The conflict of interest guideline document is available on the Web site (see "COI Guidelines," at right). Inquiries and comments should be directed to Elizabeth Kan or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
