The original book addresses the key legal and ethical issues in the rapidly developing specialty of sports and exercise medicine. Edward Grayson uses the World Medical Association Ethical Guidelines for Sports Medicine as a coherent framework within which to explain, for health professionals, how the traditional medico-legal criteria apply both nationally and internationally. Topics discussed include some of the more controversial issues which are becoming a frequent occurrence 'on and off the field', and are regularly featured in the media.
