The disclosure and management of real, perceived, or potential financial conflicts of interest are a critical step in building public trust in clinical guidelines. To that end, NIAID established a procedure to ensure maximum transparency of the guidelines development process by reporting the affiliations and activities of members of the expert panel and representatives on the coordinating committee. Prospective members of the writing and review groups submitted written Conflict of Interest/Financial Disclosure Statements to an internal NIAID review panel considering their nomination and acceptance. Scientific and clinical expertise remained the paramount criteria for selection.
In addition to the public disclosure of this information, expert panel members verbally disclosed potential conflicts of interest to each other during their first general meeting and were asked to keep NIAID updated with any changes throughout the process. Panel members with conflicts of interest were requested to recuse themselves from voting on decisions relevant to the conflicted topic.
