Statement of Principles for Health Care Journalists

In “The Commercialisation of Medical and Scientific Reporting” [1], Caulfield calls on journalists to ask researchers about the nature of their funding and the financial relationship of the researchers to the sponsor. This is just one principle addressed in a much broader “Statement of Principles” I wrote this past year for the Association of Health Care Journalists (http://www.ahcj.umn.edu). The statement is available online [2].
