November 9, 2017 – The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine has a formal process in place to address any member grievances, including potential conflict of interests. These routine procedures are outlined in our bylaws and our Code of Ethics. Both documents are available to all with no restricted access at www.bfmed.org.
Last week, the grievance review process was activated. Today, the Board of Directors discussed this ongoing matter in person at the regularly scheduled board meeting.
The Ethics Committee is actively reviewing ABM’s Conflict of Interest policies. The results of this policy review and any recommendations will be shared with membership following the January meeting of Board.
