Presenter: N/A

Conflicts of Interest (COI) can occur from time to time in the workplace and it is important for staff to understand what they need to do should they have a COI or supervise someone who does. A COI is not seen as a negative issue but rather, something that should be disclosed and managed. It only becomes an issue if it is not declared and managed in an appropriate and transparent manner. The purpose of the training is to help improve understanding of the University’s approach of identifying, declaring, managing and monitoring a COI.
