I’ve just finished a 3-day @wada_ama symposium on the Athlete Biological Passport. Was on a concluding panel to discuss “The Future of the #ABP”. This is my overall summary slide, and here follows a thread on a very stimulating three days #doping#anti-doping #research
First, this slide is an attempt a framework for how the ABP might be evaluated, researched & applied. It divides the landscape into what I think are four quadrants, with the science behind the ABP at the center. It obviously has many layers & a lot of depth, but it's an overview
Why this approach? Because listening to talks, it struck me that it is difficult to evaluate data & perceptions (test number, positives, sanctions etc) without having a strategic framework for its objectives, goals etc. This is my suggested framework to evaluate ABP “integrity"
