Whatever you read these days, there seems to be a report on the complex professional relationships between physicians and the life sciences industry. There is a high interest due to the importance of healthcare to society and because of the many perceived and real conflicts of interest. While not a new phenomenon, recently an increased number of stricter laws, regulations, and ethical guidelines for industry and physicians have been adopted.
Life sciences companies require the collaboration with physicians for research, development and throughout their business. On Wednesday, February 18, Georgia Bio is organizing a breakfast meeting on Managing Physician Conflict of Interest Dilemmas.
Jan Heybroek, President of The Arcas Group, will be moderating a distinguished panel of experts on this very current topic. The panel will share their perspectives on physician-industry interactions, discuss best practices, and provide insight into dealing with conflict of interest dilemmas.
Edmund K. Waller, MD – Professor of Medicine and Oncology, Director, Bone Marrow and Stem Cell Transplant Center, Winship Cancer Institute, Emory University
