2021 Conferences

For the first time ever, the Pain Society of Alberta 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 broadly to national and international learners.


Alberta Outreach Education Forum:

Looking Through the Lens of Virtual Pain Care

Friday June 4, 2021

The APEC Planning Committee is developing an educational forum, together with providers working in rural and northern regions of Alberta, to address identified learning gaps. 

These sessions will move annually throughout the province. Our first stop is Grande Prairie, using a virtual delivery model to focus on supporting our rural primary care colleagues and outreach areas of our province.


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.
