Virtual Symposium on Pain


Just a quick link to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association web page with details on their Virtual Symposium on Pain.

Just like a traditional face-to-face conference, this unique online event will feature interactive learning sessions highlighting the most recent advances in pain science, and provide a forum for an energizing exchange of ideas focused on the treatment of patients with painful conditions.

This event will be relevant to all physiotherapists working with people with painful conditions. Sessions will be of particular interest to those working in multidisciplinary, return-to-work and pain management programs. Sessions are designed at an introductory to intermediate level.

How does it work?
By participating in three self-paced, interactive workshops throughout November, participants will be introduced to the vocabulary, evidence base, and current best practices in pain management. Each workshop will include one formal presentation, followed by a combination of reflective and collaborative exercises and online discussion with fellow participants, allowing you to apply your learning and explore the state of the art with colleagues across Canada and around the world.

Workshop 1: The Birth of the Pain Experience
with Dave Walton
(Begins November 3)

Workshop 2: How Pain Becomes Persistent
with Debbie Patterson

Workshop 3: Assessment and Management Trends

(Begins November 17)

Synthesis and Panel Discussion (Live) (Date TBC)
