Peer Review Committees

RESOLVED, That the North Carolina Medical Society supports organizing peer review committees that are free of conflicts of interest whenever possible. Since conflicts of interest in the peer review process are sometimes inevitable, medical staffs should develop a process for resolving conflicts of interest that centers on the best interests of patients, includes full disclosure of conflicts and potential conflicts, and makes available a fair external review option in appropriate situations.
