  • Policy should limit inappropriate relationships that do not provide benefits to patients and trainees or that provide excessive benefits to individual (faculty, staff, or students)
  • Policy intended to assure the safety and well-being of patients and the integrity of our institutions and their research and clinical activities
  • Vendor relationships are not necessarily bad, but they must be approved and managed
