The International Confederation of Sport and Exercise Science Practice (ICSESP) was formed in 2020 through a collaboration between the ACSM, BASES, CSEP, ESSA and SESNZ to provide a global platform to advance the recognition and opportunities for practitioners of Sport and Exercise Science (SES). The ICSESP has been working to internationalise the professions of SES and establish common core standards of accreditation and practice. This session will introduce the ICSESP and report on some of this initial work. The session will be of interest to all practitioners (ie those that work in the application of their skills and knowledge directly with athletes, patients, or general population) and to academics that educate future practitioners.
Please join us for three presentations of current projects and an open discussion about how to engage with us and what it means for the future of your SES profession.
- An introduction to the ICSESP and the need for global advocacy
- Developing an International Code of Professional and Ethical Practice for Sports and Exercise Professionals
- Accreditation standards in clinical exercise physiology: an audit of existing standards across national accrediting bodies
- Open discussion and engagement opportunities
