This online course is intended to increase healthcare providers’ awareness of the special characteristics of patients who use Performance and Image Enhancing Drugs (PIEDs) in recreational sports and to improve their professional skills for encountering such patients in clinical work. The online course has been produced by the Dopinglinkki service administered by the A-Clinic Foundation.
As part of the DELTS (i.e. Doping E-learning tools) project, Dopinglinkki in collaboration with several partners, including the University of New South Wales (UNSW), is evaluating the effectiveness of several PIED e-learning programs focussed on recreational PIED users (e.g. fitness trainers).
