Addressing sexual violence in sport: American Medical Society for Sports Medicine issues position statement

Sexual violence is a serious problem with potentially severe and lasting negative effects on the physical, psychological, and social well-being of victims — including athletes. A new American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) Position Statement on sexual violence in sport was published simultaneously in four leading sports medicine journals, including Current Sports Medicine Reports (CSMR), official journal of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM); and the Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine (CJSM), official journal of the AMSSM.
