1. Enacting clear policies: Developing clear policies on conflict of interest is important in setting expectations and limits for all involved parties.
2. Training & education: Providing employees with training and guidance on identifying conflicts of interest may help bring awareness to those issues that should be avoided.
3. Disclosing information openly: Encouraging open communication by requiring individuals to disclose any potential financial or personal interests before making decisions could also help diminish the likelihood of unethical conduct.
4. Reviewing/monitoring decisions regularly: Having another individual review decisions made by staff members who have identified conflicts could further reduce the chance that bias influences their judgement.
