As a prominent international organization, the WABIP has a growing role and responsibility in developing policies pertaining to the ethical function of a non-profit medical professional organization as well as in developing and/or endorsing specific health care related policies affecting patients with airway, lung, pleural and esophageal disorders. The WABIP strives to collaborate with other international and national organizations to help raise awareness about certain disease processes, technologies, and procedural techniques to the benefit of physicians and a global society.
Conflict of InterestThe Conflict of Interest (“COI”) Policy and Rules were designed to ensure transparency while protecting the integrity of individuals participating on the WABIP Executive Board, Board of Regents (“BOR”), committees, taskforces, guidelines panels, or individuals participating in other ways in the development and implementation of WABIP products or services. This policy thus provides a framework from which the WABIP and its Conflict of Interest Oversight Committee (“COI-OC”) might evaluate and manage disclosures that could be viewed as potential, real, or perceived conflicts.
The COI Policy, Rules and Disclosure document is included in all application forms for WABIP leadership positions. You may find below two such forms: contact us if you have any questions regarding our policies.
