Prior to the AIS, David worked in private practice in Canberra and London.

David's presentation:
Logistical and ethical challenges for anti-doping systems in sport

Global anti-doping systems are complex and efforts to eliminate doping from sport are fraught with challenges. These include conflicts of interest involving stakeholder bodies, flawed governance structures within anti-doping organisations and a constantly changing array of doping agents.

Protecting the safety and welfare of athletes and attempting to provide a ‘clean’ environment in which athletes compete comes at a cost for the athlete. The anti-doping system places impositions on the athlete that many in society would not tolerate. This presentation will address some of the logistical and ethical challenges ingrained in current anti-doping.
