This chapter begins with a discussion of the six frequently proposed reforms to address conflicts of interest and how these are either ineffective or inadequate remedies. It then outlines six strategies that can help cope with physicians' conflicts of interest based on the experiences of the United States, France, and Japan. These are increasing medical care outside of private practice, restricting entrepreneurship within private practice, overseeing entrepreneurial physicians, regulating payment incentives, restricting and regulating ties with third parties, and protecting professional judgment.
