ABOUT:

The goal of drug-testing in sport is to both deter use of performance-enhancing substances, while protecting the athletes who compete clean—leveling the playing field for all competitors.

Developing an effective drug-testing policy is an important component of a drug-testing program. In this webinar, we will identify an action plan to develop or review the components of an institutional drug-testing program. This session will focus on implementing many best practices.

 

At the end of this presentation, attendees will be better able to:

  1. Identify key components of an effective drug testing program.
  2. Define key people to include in developing a drug testing policy.
  3. Evaluate your drug testing policy and ensure it is effective for your organization.

Target Audience: ATs, RDs, CSCS, and other sports medicine or athlete support staff
