The conversation around disclosure of conflicts of interest (COI) in the medical community continues to be a dynamic one, particularly as transparency initiatives like the Open Payments database from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and ProPublica's Dollars for Docs make information about industry ties readily available to the public.

Finally, how do different organizations ensure that they are adequately addressing the concerns raised by these relationships?
Neurology Today spoke with leaders and representatives from several neurology organizations for insight into how they navigate the changing financial landscape with their members and their policies on conflicts of interests.
