Formatted abstract Mitchell raises issues that strongly reflect on the professional standing of the medical profession. His particular focus is on the pharmaceutical industry, and on much needed changes as highlighted by Medicines Australia.2 Similar concerns exist in the medical technology industry where the transparency of relationships is becoming increasingly important.

As professionals, these issues of integrity, transparency and trust are fundamental. The doctor–patient relationship must be our primary focus, and should not be violated by any perceived or real conflict of interest.
