DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.149
Synopsis: 
This manuscript explored the knowledge and confidence of Barbadian polyclinic doctors when dealing with anti-doping issues. It also assesses the uptake of recent anti-doping educational interventions within the same group.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Studies worldwide have shown that physicians in general practice often do not have adequate knowledge or confidence in relation to anti-doping issues in sport. There is little information on this topic for the Caribbean region and this study sought to explore Barbadian polyclinic doctors’ knowledge in relation to anti-doping.
