Participate in workgroup discussions, prepare draft and final guidance. Federal and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) policies regarding financial conflict of interest have recently been revised. Currently, the AHRQ policy for non-financial conflict of interest within their Effective Health Care (EHC) program is unclear. The RTI-UNC EPC will assist AHRQ in review of a selection of national and international non-financial conflict of interest policies that pertain to systematic review. The characteristics of these policies will be abstracted.
