Conflict of Interest
Baptist Health is fortunate to have so many qualified and dedicated members of its boards, because their only compensation is the reward of improving the status of healthcare in our communities. Board members and their immediate family members are not allowed to do business with Baptist Health.
Each year, every board member must submit a written declaration of any potential or perceived conflict of interest. If it is determined that a conflict of interest does exist, the Board of Trustees acts to see that the conflict is resolved.
Conflict of Interests in Research
True to its commitment to maintaining high ethical standards and to complying with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, Baptist Health South Florida has developed and implemented a policy entitled: Individual Financial Conflict of Interests (FCOI) in Research.
The policy aims to promote objectivity in research by establishing standards so that there is a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct, or reporting of research conducted at Baptist Health will not be biased by conflicting financial interests of investigators.
