TAB 3 – ADel
Effective prevention and clean sport values-based education programs are important to create a strong doping-free culture. WADA has developed resources for athletes, coaches, doctors and any other person who wishes to know more about anti-doping
The Anti-Doping e-Learning platform (ADeL) offers access to all topics related to clean sport and anti-doping. It offers courses for athletes, coaches, doctors, administrators and anyone interested in learning more about anti-doping and protecting the values of clean sport.
ADeL currently includes the following modules:
This online program gives athletes information about the dangers of doping and the importance of anti-doping controls and promotes positive attitudes to avoiding doping. The tool shifts the focus from what athletes are not allowed to do, to offering solutions for clean progression in sport.
Sport Physician’s Tool Kit (online) is a streamlined version of the paper based tool kit that allows physicians and other medical personnel to take the course electronically. In addition to covering anti-doping modules specific to sports physicians, there are also three modules covering major games topics, done in collaboration with the IOC. The material contained in the Sport Physician’s Tool Kit (SPTK) is intended to help sport physicians develop anti-doping education programs that can be adapted and customized to suit local cultures, conditions and resources
This course consists of three modules created in collaboration with the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
These are condensed versions, which focus is on the knowledge needed for Major Games. The modules will help you understand how to identify and prescribe Prohibited Drugs at Major Events. In addition, it will provide guidance on bringing medication to the Games as well as information on the IOC Needle Policy.
This course is for medical professionals including sports physicians or any other professional involved in the diagnosis, treatment or rehabilitation of athletes. It is designed to equip them with accurate anti-doping knowledge, with a focus on understanding how to operate in line with the anti-doping rules and support their athletes.
Information Security Awareness for Everyone (iSAFE) is a video-based course designed to help you identify common security threats and protect yourself against them.
The safe practices taught in this course can be applied by everyone, including athletes, coaches, and anti-doping administrators, in day-to-day activities when using web and app-based anti-doping tools like ADAMS.
WADA's Play True Quiz is an interactive computer game that tests athletes and their entourage’s knowledge about anti-doping. It is currently available in 36 languages. As an integral element of its Outreach Program, WADA devoted considerable resources to the development of this interactive computer game which has been showcased at major events including the Olympic Games, Paralympic Games and many international events.
