Responsabilidad de las revistas de educación médica y la industria

  • Mario Giraldo Prieto

Resumen

La gran responsabilidad que los autores tienen cuando planean, ejecutan, analizan y publican resultados es inmensurable a la luz del bienestar de la población a la que impacta. Igual es la de un comité editorial, frente a los sesgos que por algún motivo presenten las publicaciones que, inadvertidamente o de manera consciente, influencien las decisiones que la comunidad académica tome sobre el cuidado de los pacientes en el quehacer cotidiano.
En otras palabras, toda revista responde por la veracidad científica que presenta a la comunidad académica y para ello requiere enfrentar dilemas de trasparencia, responsabilidad, ética, manejo de conflictos de intereses y autonomía. Por lo tanto, se recomienda revelar aquellos potenciales conflictos que puedan tener los miembros de dicho comité, su filiación institucional y los lazos financieros con beneficiarios de las pautas comerciales.
