“OPINION: Health service researchers – are we blind to our own conflicts of interest?”

Andreas Laupacis-July 3, 2013-Healthy Debate
“Most of us who have functioned as advisors to government have signed confidentiality agreements, which are similar to those signed by consultants to industry.

Many health service researchers who are not directly employed by government still receive some or all of their salaries from government, and they often work in research institutes substantially funded by government. It seems to me that this can put us in a similar potential conflict of interest as industry funding places those who consult for industry. However, many of my colleagues do not appear to agree with me.”

Perspective and data?
