Abstract

Conflicts of interest (both financial and nonfinancial) have eroded public trust in medical research. There is now overwhelming evidence for systematic bias due to conflicts of interest associated with financial links between researchers and their institutions to commercial entities. To help manage and eliminate conflicts of interest and to regain public trust, the Ambulatory Pediatric Association developed a code of ethics for research in general pediatrics. While researchers in general pediatrics encounter many of the same ethical challenges as other medical researchers, many issues apply uniquely to the study of children's health because children may not be able to protect their own interests.
