Hand Surgeons Take Leadership Role in Industry Relations to Ensure Patient Care

ROSEMONT, Ill., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --The American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) Corporate Advisory Council recently gathered in Chicago to create the first ever ethics guidelines for industry relations created by a collaborative effort between physicians and industry representatives. The guidelines, developed jointly in the spirit of transparency and the highest ethical standards, will be followed by the hand surgeons of the ASSH, an organization that has been a leader in developing standards to both embrace the support of industry partners while also ensuring that such support is accepted without conditions or restrictions.

In 2008, the Corporate Advisory Council, comprised of key leadership both in medicine and industry, was formed by the ASSH Board of Directors (Council) as a means of monitoring and developing clean and ethical relationships. While serving as President of the Hand Society from 2007-08, Steven Z. Glickel, MD, conceived the initial concept of the "10 Commandments". Dr. Glickel, chair of the Hand Service at Roosevelt Hospital in New York City, believed it was necessary to develop a clearly defined standards to be followed by hand surgeons. The standards ensure that any appearance of impropriety or the perception that a physician's ability to independently make decisions regarding the care of a patient would be avoided. William Seitz, Jr., MD was serving as the ASSH Commercial Support Chair when Glickel conceived the idea. They worked together to move the concept of standards to a concrete reality. Dr. Seitz, who is at the Cleveland Clinic, is now chair of the newly formed Corporate Advisory Council. Robert Szabo, MD, (UC Davis) is the current ASSH President, and he has continued the work to support the initiative. ASSH's "10 Commandments" will be strictly adhered to by physicians and corporations
