13th Biennial IAGS Meeting: Participant Disclosures

Participant Disclosures

It is the policy of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) to insure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all its sponsored educational programs.

All speakers, chairpersons, panelists and planning committee members participating in this program are expected to disclose to the program audience all potential conflicts of interest that might introduce a bias in their presentations.

The intent of this policy is not to prevent a participant with a potential conflict of interest from making a presentation. It is merely intended that any potential conflict should be identified openly so that the listeners may form their own judgments about the presentation with the full disclosure of the facts. It remains for the audience to determine whether the participant’s outside interests may reflect a possible bias in either the exposition or the conclusions presented. The participants listed below have disclosed if they have any existing potential conflicts of interest with respect to their participation in our program:
