Potential Conflicts of Interest
The DOG strives to ensure in all its activities independence, objectivity and diversity of opinion as well as scientific excellence. To meet this requirement, the DOG Congress expects the speakers of the congress to disclose their financial or other connections with pharmaceutical, biotechnological and medical technology companies, consulting firms and other organizations, for which a conflict of interest cannot be excluded. For lecturers, the embedding of an appropriate slide is mandatory. You will find a master copy of the slides attached or as a download at Conflicts of Interest.
In case a potential conflict of interest exists, please fill in the corresponding arrays in slide 1 and add it at the beginning of your presentation as slide 2. If there is no conflict of interest, please place the 2nd slide. The disclosure of potential conflicts of interest is mandatory for all speakers.
