The ITI is a non-profit academic organization of clinicians and researchers active in the field of implant dentistry. The objectives of the ITI are the promotion and dissemination of knowledge about implant dentistry and related fields without commercial influence.
ITI Speakers bear the following objectives in mind when preparing their presentations and they adhere to the following lecture principles:
- Presentations are based on published scientific data. ITI Speakers should clearly state when unpublished data is presented.
- ITI Speakers should make it clear to the audience when personal experience and opinions are being expressed.
- ITI Speakers may not promote commercially available products or materials. Trade names should not be used in presentations.
- Presentations should uphold the universal principles of medical ethics. The privacy of patients is maintained at all times.
- If there is a conflict of interest relating to the subjects being presented, e.g. if an ITI Speaker is paid or sponsored by a commercial entity, or associated with a commercial entity in any way, the Speaker must declare this relationship in the abstract or lecture synopsis, as well as at the start of the presentation.
- Presentations must not be made for self-promotion or to promote products or materials in which the presenter has a pecuniary interest.
- The ITI Speaker must declare any conflicts of interest relating to their presentation, such as commercial sponsorship and consultancies, in both the written abstract and at the commencement of their oral presentation.
