At the DHOC, we value your health above all else. It is critical that all therapeutic decisions be made based upon your individual needs and without any conflicting interests. We recognize that even the appearance of outside influence upon patient care can be detrimental to the trust and relationship building between patients and our centre. For these reasons, we do not seek or permit any financial relationships between the staff or physicians and the pharmaceutical industry. Gifts are not accepted from sales representatives and financial donations to the osteoporosis centre from any source must be made to the Calgary Health Trust directly.
