Medical groups sign on to tough ethics rules

Wall Street Journal Health Blog, April 22, 2010

Leaders at medical societies and top editors at their associated journals will have to sever direct financial ties with industry as part of new ethics rules rolled out today. The Council of Medical Specialty Societies says the new code—which covers conflicts of interest, financial disclosure, independent program development, and independent leadership—has already been adopted by 13 of its 32 member societies. The American Society of Clinical Oncology, American College of Physicians, American College of Cardiology, and American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists have already signed on.
