2021 Educational Opportunities

For the first time ever, the PSA is increasing the educational opportunities for 2021. Our focus remains to meet the needs of people with lived experience and healthcare providers within our Alberta roots, as well as reaching out to national and international recipients.

2021 Exhibitor Guide

As one of our exhibitors, you will have ample opportunities to engage and network with our participants, share research updates, and information about your products and services. Most importantly, your commitment and support will allow us to provide a wider array of educational opportunities from all over the world to further enhance learning. The PSA is offering you and your teams an exclusive opportunity to be present and support all of the educational opportunities we are offering throughout the year.



15th Annual Conference

Friday October 15 – Sunday October 17, 2021

Coming Together. Learn. Share. Inspire.

In October 2020, after a quick pivot from an in-person conference to a virtual delivery model, the PSA had its most successful conference by offering a three-day, FREE event.  


Using our theme as our guide, over 4500 people registered to come together from all over the world, to share and learn a wealth of knowledge, and become inspired to effectuate change for those living with pain.

Building on the momentum, planning is already underway for our next conference that will be held virtually, and if safety guidelines prevail, a hybrid version that includes in-person attendance at the Chateau Lake Louise.


This new and engaging event will help to:


• Enhance professional development and pain management skills for all of our healthcare participants

• Bring leaders and healthcare professionals in the field of pain management together to improve patient care

• Reduce learning barriers and effectuate change for people living with persistent pain in their clinical practice.


Let's Talk About My Migraine

Friday May 14, 2021

In June 2020, the PSA presented Let’s Talk About My Pain to people with lived experience and their healthcare providers. Topics included Sleep and Chronic Pain, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Anti-Inflammatory Diet and Nutrition, Medical Cannabis for Pain, Movement and Exercise breaks and Lived Experience presentations. Over 500 people attended this four-hour educational opportunity that was well received based on feedback from the evaluations.

To build on the success of this series, we are looking forward to offering the next half-day edition, Let’s Talk About My Migraine on May 14, 2021. The initiative will be led by our Board of Director member, Dr. Werner Becker along with Dr. Elizabeth Leroux and Migraine Canada, to help us create the foundation to execute a seamless delivery of education about headache, migraine and all of the available new treatments.



Rural Education Forum: Alberta Pain Education Collaborative

Friday June 11, 2021

Together with our new APEC committee members and providers in rural areas of Alberta, we are creating an educational forum to address identified learning gaps in their areas.


These sessions will move annually throughout the province. Our first stop is Grande Prairie, using a virtual delivery model, with the potential of face to face. We will offer a half-day webinar to support our rural primary care colleagues, focusing on an outreach to areas of our province that may be under-serviced.


The delivery of enhanced information for rural health care providers makes this endeavour so important to improving the lives and care of people living with pain in these areas.
