Code of Ethics to Curb Conflicts of Interest

As reported by the Associated Press today, the Council of Medical Specialty Societies has developed a code of ethics to curb conflicts of interest. The article, New medical ethics code aims to curb industry sway, states, "one of its most controversial rules: requiring top leaders of any medical society and top editors of its journals to have no consulting deals or financial ties to industry."

The Council of Medical Specialty Societies includes 32 medical societies with 650,000 members, from neurologists and obstetricians to family doctors and pediatricians. Check out the entire code of ethics.
