University of Otago researchers have told BMJ (formerly
called the British Medical Journal) to be more transparent
after it highlighted a glowing report about the Canterbury
District Health Board without disclosing who paid for it.
Any new work between the Otago Regional Council (ORC) and
Invermay agricultural research centre is a ''sideline'' to
the ''damage'' done by the restructuring plan confirmed this
week, ORC chairman Stephen Woodhouse says.
