Quality Management

All content undergoes a scientific quality assurance process before it is published on the website. Helmholtz Zentrum München and the German Center for Lung Research  (DZL e.V.)  – as partners of the Lung Information Service – are important sources that ensure scientific excellence. The close connection to these institutions enables up-to-date information transfer and short information channels from science to patients.

In addition, a panel of internal and external scientific advisors has been set up. It critically monitors the concept and selection of topics of the Lung Information Service and checks the contents for their factual accuracy.

The Lung Information Service checks all texts it publishes to see if there is a conflict of interest among its authors. A conflict of interest exists when an author maintains financial and personal relationships with for-profit institutions that are likely to influence the content of the texts provided to us. The information provided by the authors is for internal quality control purposes and will not be published.
