Managing Conflicts of Interest: What Happens When You Just Can't Say No?

Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

In the world of conflicts, it is easier and less stressful to just tell the conflicted person no and move on; however, what happens when the administration or circumstances require a different outcome? How do you balance the regulations, external influences, internal pressures and activities to ensure that the result is fair, unbiased and uncompromised? Recognize that it is not easy and not everyone is going to be happy with the result. In order to manage most conflicts of interest, compromise is the order of the day. During this webinar, we will look at the elements of conflict of interest management (it is more than just the plan!) and see how those factors influence implementation in a research setting. We will also explore the role of stakeholders that can become critical allies in the management process. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Outline the elements of a strong Conflict of Interest (COI) management process.
  • Understand options for implementing COI management that is feasible in university and research settings.
  • Identify the stakeholders required to make COI management work in your institution.
