Non-financial conflicts of interests in psychiatric research and practice

  • Mario Maj (a1)
Summary

Not all conflicts of interests affecting psychiatry are financial in nature. Our field is vulnerable to some varieties of non-financial conflicts of interests. Examples include the possible conflict between a researcher's allegiance to a school of thought and the integrity of psychotherapy research, or between a psychiatrist's political commitment and patient welfare.
