Challenges Faced by the AOD & Medical Fields
There is increasing interest in the non-medical use of anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS), with some suggesting we are facing a ‘looming public health problem’. The use of these and other performance and image enhancing substances pose some unique challenges for the AOD and medical fields.
This webinar will:
– Provide an overview of the types of substances people use;
– Outline the purposes for use and the contexts within which they are used;
– Present the short- and long-term effects experienced; and
– Consider how the medical community can engage this group.
