  • Conflicts of Interest Training Now in HealthStream

    Beginning in November 2010, McLean Hospital employees who interact with industry and who may be exposed to potential conflicts, will be required to complete a Conflicts of Interest module as part of their annual refresher training in HealthStream. "Industry" includes pharmaceutical companies, medical device makers, and external healthcare providers such as nursing homes.

    Partners Office of Interactions with Industry prepared the short Conflicts of Interest course to provide employees with a basic overview of conflicts of interest and potential outside activities risk areas. The module is 18 slides, followed by a 6 question post-test. The training takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.

    If you are impacted by changes to the Partners/McLean conflicts of interest policies (either because of your role/department at McLean or because you are in a position to work closely with industry), you will soon see this Conflicts of Interest module when you log in to HealthStream. As with your other HealthStream courses, please complete the Conflicts of Interest course prior to your annual performance review.

    If the Conflicts of Interest course does not appear on your HealthStream .Assigned Learning. list, you are not required to complete the module during this performance review cycle.

    To access your training course list, please log in to HealthStream ( using your Partners username and password. If you have forgotten your username or password, please click the "Forgot Username or Password?" link under the login button.
