This session will examine the scope of medical consulting and potential for conflict of interest (COI). We will examine how COI is managed in the sphere of Neuromodulation compared to other sectors of organized medicine. We will discuss the implications of COI for physicians as individuals and collectively.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe the scope of medical consulting and physician engagement.
- Discuss how a conflict of interest is handled in organized medicine both within and outside of Neuromodulation, including financial thresholds, research involvement, and speaking engagements.
- Explain how individual physicians can best manage conflicts of interest and the implications of COI disclosure.
- Indicate how industry-sponsored speakers and industry-sponsored research impacts physician decision making and clinical care.
