A risk assessment is a systematic process that involves identifying, analysing and controlling risks. In this webinar we discussed what a risk assessment is in the context of anti-doping. How does it inform anti-doping organisations’ testing and education activities? Why is a risk assessment such an important tool for clean sport? A team of ITA experts from the Science & Medical, Testing and Education departments addressed these questions in the June edition of the ITA Monthly Webinar Series.
Joining the panel discussion were Ronan Coquet, PhD (ITA Science and Medical team) and Richard Mann (ITA Testing team). Moderating the conversation was Olya Abasolo, OLY from the ITA Education department. Ronan first explained what a Risk Assessment is and how it is developed. Richard then discussed how a Risk Assessment is integrated in the test distribution strategy. Finally, Olya provided an overview of the education and prevention opportunities that a doping risk assessment presents.
