Image and performance enhancing drug use in the UK

Online, United Kingdom,

There are growing health concerns regarding the use of image and performance enhancing drugs (IPEDs), in particular, anabolic androgenic steroids. In response, the National Institute for Health Research awarded a development grant to assess the available intelligence and research gaps to inform intervention evaluation. With support of an active steering group, members of Anabolic Steroid UK Network and special thanks to a dedicated public expert advisory board, this work is now complete. The key finding will be presented and discussed in this seminar covering: 

  • Mapping the influences on harmful IPED use
  • Mapping of current interventions targeting image and performance enhancing drug (IPED) use
  • What does the academic literature tell us about image and performance enhancing drug (IPED) use in the UK?
  • Understanding of the number of men who have recently used anabolic androgenic steroids in the UK
  • Engaging with the community: The value of drawing on expert knowledge
