PharmedOut Conference - June 25, 2010, Washington DC

"Prescription for Conflict: Should Industry Fund Continuing Medical Education?"

Speakers include Paul Thacker, an investigator for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Edmund Pellegrino, MD, Professor Emeritus of Medicine and Medical Ethics at GUMC, Carl Elliott, MD, PhD, a philosopher at the University of Minnesota and author of "Better than Well," Joel Lexchin, MD, University of Toronto, and several former industry insiders. We plan to offer continuing education credits to physicians and nurses. The conference, to be held on Friday, June 25, 2010, is open to the public. It is a collaborative effort with the Kennedy Institute of Ethics and the Georgetown University Law Center.

We intend to address the questions: Does industry funding of CME adversely affect the educational content of CME? If so, can commercial bias be assessed and mitigated? Registration information, a flyer for posting, the agenda, and travel information are also available at:
