Ethical Issues in Sports Medicine

regina campana's insight:

This article shows how ethical decisions in sports can effect many people.  The physicians and therapists are obligated to follow their code.  However that can be made very difficult by coaches, team owners, stakeholders and even players.  The majority of these people are concerned with the players performance and what they can give back to the team.

SPORTS ETHICS

Ethics for athletes and officials is an important part of the game.
regina campana's insight:

The majority of this clip talks about sports ethics and the officials.  I think it posts a very good point that can be used for doctors and therapists as well.  It is important to recognize the person and not just them as an athlete.  Giving the proper care should be black and white.  The therapist needs to focus on the person even if it takes them out of the game.
