Discussion Paper on Abuse, Harassment and Bullying in Sport

This position paper was prepared by the Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise Medicine (CASEM) Women's Issues in Sport Medicine Committee. It proposes that as supporters of safe and healthy performance environments, the Canadian sport medicine community plays an important role in the prevention of maltreatment. As such, it is essential that sport medicine specialists be educated on issues of abuse, harassment and bullying in sport and be equipped with strategies to intervene if or when potential cases arise. This paper reviews current literature on the topic and proposes recommendations for the potential role of sport medicine professionals in the identification, treatment and prevention of abuse, harassment and bullying in sport.
