RESPECT-P


The goal of this pan-European initiative is to bring contemporary thinkers and practitioners together to foster high quality doping research and evidence-informed doping prevention.

Underpinned by the ethos of the Clean Sport Alliance, the RESPECT-P team recognises and works with the complexity of the doping problem and prioritises collaboration and co-ordination in moving anti-doping policy and practice forward.

objectives

1. To guide future research informing tailored doping prevention programmes for para-sports through a scoping literature review that maps current research trends in doping research on para-sports and identifies gaps in current knowledge. 

2. To ensure we develop the Clean Sport Alliance Knowledge Exchange Platform to address the needs of all athletes and athlete-support personnel, including those from the para-sport movement.


3. Focusing on athlete-support personnel, to capture and magnify para-athletes’ and athlete support personnel’s voices as part of the clean-sport movement through a series of films, thus ensuring the unique and complex nature of their sport experiences are represented in anti–doping discourse and policy–making.


4. Focusing on athlete-support personnel, to involve para-athletes and athlete-support personnel throughout the anti-doping research process.


5. Expanding the focus on athletes, to involve para-athletes from outside WADA-regulated sports (e.g., injured, sick and ill servicemen and women involved in competitive sport [i.e., Invictus Games]) within clean-sport education. 


6. To co–create the research agenda for doping prevention in non-disabled and para-sports by involving athlete-support personnel as well as drawing upon international expertise in doping-prevention research and practice through the established Delphi method.
