Conflicts of Interest
All employees, staff, and contractors with whom we do business recognize the importance of choosing medications, supplies, instrumentation, medical devices, etc. on the basis of effectiveness and benefit to our patients. Furthermore, we recognize the importance of not being unduly influenced or appearing to be influenced in our choices of such items. To this end, we all adhere to a policy of avoiding any conflicts of interest or appearance of conflict in conducting our business.
- In all situations, potential conflicts of interest will be disclosed to a senior official or as described in appropriate policies and procedures.
- Physicians, researchers, and others to whom it is applicable will adhere to the Conflict of Interest and Commitment Policy of Harvard Medical School.
