CMS has posted a white paper on "Potential Conflict of Interest in the Production of Drug Compendia" produced by the Duke Evidence-based Practice Center under contract to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The report addresses, among other things: where in the compendia processes conflict of interest may arise; an "ethical framework" for evaluating potential conflicts; a review of the conflict of interest policies of the four compendia used in Medicare coverage determinations; and a discussion of the adequacy of current compendia approaches and ways to minimize conflicts of interest.

"As a busy in-house practitioner, I rarely have the time to attend formal seminars and conferences. Consequently, I find the news releases put out by the various law firms invaluable in keeping me up to date on developments in the law and recent case law. The service that Lexology provides, through consolidating those various news releases and grouping them under the relevant categories, is a timesaver for me and allows me to do a quick daily scan of recent developments."
