Managing Conflicts of Interest in Medicine


A key feature of the medical profession is the primacy of patient care. Public trust and confidence in the medical profession is essential for ensuring people access medical care. Conflicts of interest in medicine have the potential to undermine public trust and confidence in the profession if not managed appropriately.

The AMA Guidelines for Doctors on Managing Conflicts of Interest in Medicine 2018 serve to assist you to appropriately identify and manage actual and potential conflicts of interest in the practice of Medicine.
