Discuss 08.1: Case 79 – Conflict of Interest | HA4521D-Healthcare Management Capstone | National American University
Better communication would have helped to avoid this situation. It is important that all healthcare providers disclose their relationships with companies outside of the hospital before making recommendations. This will ensure transparency. Doctors should also take into account alternative treatment options and medications before making decisions, so that they do not limit themselves based on their personal preferences or allegiances. In the end, these steps will help to prevent any conflicts of interests and make sure that patients’ safety is paramount.
