On October 27-28, the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics (ASLME) will co-sponsor the upcoming “Conflicts of Interest in the Practice of Medicine: A National Symposium.” Click here to view the conference agenda.
Conference Goals: This one-and-a-half day conference will feature an array of recognized national experts who will discuss, debate, and propose best practices and approaches to the problem of conflicts of interest. This conference intends to foster a cross-disciplinary perspective on pertinent issues, and by the end of the conference, attendees will (1) learn about current consensus panel recommendations regarding management of conflicts of interest, (2) be able to describe remaining challenges to regulating conflicts of interest in key areas of research and medical practice, and (3) help fashion recommendations for the key players and identify other key steps in moving forward. The findings of the conference will be published in a special issue of The Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics, a leading health law journal read by many academics and policymakers in this field.
The conference is generously funded by a grant from the Highmark Foundation of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with additional funding contributed by the Jewish Healthcare Foundation, the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences, and by the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
