Boston Medical Center reexamines doctors' speaking rules

Boston Globe, October 8, 2009

Boston Medical Center will look at tightening enforcement of its conflict of interest policy, after determining that one physician violated the rules by earning thousands of dollars as a speaker this year for Eli Lilly & Co. BMC officials have reconvened the committee that oversees doctors' relationships with the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. The group will review "speakers bureau participation and control of presentation content and methods to monitor physician activities," according to a statement from the hospital.
