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.

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.
