Title: Is it really all about the money? Non-financial conflicts of interest in medicine

Abstract: It is well-recognised that financial conflicts of interest (such as those stemming from industry funding) can distort medical research, publication, education, policymaking and practice, and most organisations have processes in place for identifying and managing them. Non-financial conflicts of interest (such as those stemming from beliefs and relationships) have similar effects, yet they are relatively neglected in organisational policies and processes. Some argue that this is as it should be—i.e., that non-financial conflicts cannot and should not be managed alongside financial ones. Some take this even further, arguing that there is no such thing as a non-financial conflict of interest. In this presentation, I will present the arguments against creating a false dichotomy between financial and non-financial conflicts of interest. After making the case that non-financial conflicts of interest exist, and that they can and should be managed alongside financial conflicts of interest, I will present some guiding principles for doing so in an ethically sound manner.
