Doing the Right Thing Podcast

The ‘Doing the Right Thing: Practical Ethics for Sport Scientists’ interactive webinar presents an ethical reasoning framework to help promote best sport science practice in the sport industry. The ethical reasoning framework can help sport scientists and allied health professionals in sport to identify, understand and manage key ethical and professional issues in their practice and in their relationships with each other and with athletes. Practical examples will be used throughout, and Q&A opportunities will be made available during and at the end of the session. Participants will be asked to engage with pre-webinar materials in a ‘Doing the Right Thing: Practical Ethics for Sport Scientists Workbook’, which will be worked through in the webinar. 

The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 7 September 2017.
