Personal and professional respect and courtesy is highly valued in this field because physical contact with a stranger is required at times.  If clients are not comfortable with their trainer/therapist, the business will fall quickly.

Steroid use can be categorized under both professional and personal ethics as far as personal use and abiding to rules and regulations prohibiting it's use.

Jamison Fausett's curator insight, February 8, 2014 11:52 AM

While I strongly disagree with the use anabolic steroids, I think the way we look at steroids as a society could be adjusted. From my own research there is many positive benefits that could come from the use of Human Growth hormone.

Ethics in Sports Medicine

Ethics in Sports Medicine | Ethics in Sports 4128318 | Scoop.it


Sport and medicine are both goal-directed activities. The aim of sport is victory, and the aim of medicine is health. Initially, it might seem as if the demands of sport are compatible with the demands of health. Seemingly, the best way for an athlete to win is by being healthy. Little reflection is required, though, to realize at times the most effective and efficient means to winning can be detrimental to one’s health - both in the short-term and in the long-term

Doctors have therefore often defended the view that health considerations place ethical limits upon the means that one may legitimately employ to compete in sports.

So what is the primary role of the Sports Doctor? Is it to promote and protect the athlete’s health and fitness? Or is it too maximise their athletic performance, however necessary, in order to accommodate the athletes, managerial, commercial and economic interests?

Ethical issues and sports medicine

Ethical issues and sports medicine | Ethics in Sports 4128318 | Scoop.it
In today’s sports medicine arena, this definition is not so clear. The traditional physician-patient relationship now has become, at the least, a triad—doctor-patient-team relationship. In some cases, the financial “health” of the patient threatens to cloud the picture.

The priority in treating a child’s sports injury is pretty clear when the child’s physical health is the first priority of all interested parties. But what about the scholarship-level high-school athlete whose ticket out of an impoverished background or means to a college education is his or her athletic ability? What about the professional basketball player in game 7 of the final round of the playoffs? Does the Hippocratic rule—the basic tenet of all of medicine—change? When does the black and white of clinical sports medicine turn a shade of gray?

Sideline and locker room injections are routinely performed in the elite college and professional arenas to facilitate participation of the individual athlete. Where and how the line is drawn will be the ethical footprint for future sports medicine professionals. Should the relationship between the physician and the injured athlete become a team sport with multiple participants?

The hippocratic rule/oath taken by physicians is at times neglected to help the athlete succeed when their health may be in jeopardy.  The oath is one that a physician swears to treat a patient as if they were treating oneself and being responsible for that patient at all times. Athletes will do anything to stay in competition and it is the physician's duty to make the right decision, no matter what following consequence may take place.
