About this title

Synopsis:

The ethics of sports medicine is an important emerging area within biomedical ethics. The professionalization of medical support services in sport and continuing debates around issues such as performance-enhancing technologies or the health and welfare of athletes mean that all practitioners in sport, as well as researchers with an interest in sports ethics, need to develop a clear understanding of the ethical aspects of the sport–medicine nexus.

This timely collection of articles explores the conceptual and practical issues that shape and define ethics in sports medicine. Examining central topics such as consent, confidentiality, pain, doping and genetic technology, this book establishes an important baseline for future academic and professional work in this area.

About the Author:

Mike McNamee is Professor of Applied Ethics in the College of Engineering at Swansea University, UK. He is editor of the international journal Sport, Ethics and Philosophy, co-editor of Routledge’s landmark book series Ethics and Sports and a former President of the International Association for the Philosophy of Sport.
