Conflict-of-Interest: an IEA-sponsored Session on Evidence, Issues and Integrity- New Insights and Best Practices for Epidemiology

Thursday, 21 August 2014: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
Kahtnu 1 (Dena'ina Center)

Conflict-of-interest continues to be a major concern and contentious issue in epidemiology, as in many other scientific fields, and new empirical work on the extent of the problem is helping to reshape discussion of what constitutes best practices. The IEA is sponsoring this session in order to advance understanding of why conflict-of-interest matters, and what steps can be taken by epidemiologists, the institutions in which we work, and those who sponsor our research -- to protect and improve the integrity of our science.
