Re: Patients can’t trust doctors’ advice if we hide our financial connections with drug companies
I agree with much of the arguments put forward by Dr Wen that doctors should disclose relevant financial interests. But her case does not go far enough. Surely if one has a an actual conflict of interest, that is advice or treatment chosen in part by a personal financial or commercial interest, it is unethical to be managing the patient in the first place.
