  • Pain Science Division/CPA inaugural "webinar" series on pain

    Here is a link. It did not take CPA long, once our group was accepted as a full fledged division, to get busy on this. I think the idea was pitched only about five minutes after the vote was taken and we were inducted unanimously. I think this has been organized carefully, will be technically excellent, and very informative. All three of the presenters have years of teaching/presenting experience. I couldn't be more happy with how this whole PSD project is turning out. :thumbs_up

    I'll look into this one, Diane. It seems like a reasonable price to have what is essentially a seminar in your own house on your own time.

    Why do the Canadians/Europeans/Australians/New Zealanders always seem ahead of the curve on these issues?

        Diane, Europeans...?

        This is one that I CAN do as well, without major time issues. Good stuff.

          Ah yes, I see that my eyes slid right over "Europeans" Bas.. Nate already included you/Dutch. . My bad.

          It's a good question Nate asks though. Anyone have any ideas about that?

            Nate,
            I'll look into this one, Diane.
            I've written to CPA to ask them for clarification on who will be allowed participation access.
            Maybe they will extend the invite to non-Canadians. I hope so..

              Hadn't thought that it might create problems. I wonder if they would charge the, what is it...GST tax? Is Internet media held to taxation like that?

              Thanks for the follow...please post if they respond back.

                  Another interesting question. It's all a bit bewildering to this old PT. The technology, the new relationship we have with CPA, our new identity as a division, all of it. I've sort of been just going with the flow here and understanding none of it - although we have exec members who do, so I've asked for someone to help me out, explain the parameters.
                  The GST does not apply to PTs as we are considered "medical" providers - however, "medical" does not apply to our organizations and the work they do, so probably yes to that one.

                    Hi Nate,
                    I checked with CPA, and you don't have to worry about paying any tax on this.
                    Specifically:
                    Tax regulations state that taxes are to be charged based on the location of the event. However, since this is an online event there is no actual "location", so the appropriate tax for the province of residence must apply. For foreign registrants, obviously no Canadian taxes apply.

                        Work is proceeding apace on this series of webinars on pain, co-hosted by CPA and PSD.
                        I checked with the liason and the system, he tells me, can handle any number of people from anywhere in the world. It is open to anyone (not just PTs) who is interested in the topic of managing pain (technically, that would be just about anyone who owns and operates a nervous system). All are welcome to register and "attend."

                        Participants will have access to each presentation for a week, and can study the material as many times as they would like, and write down any questions they might have.

                        After all three presentations, there will be a fourth, live interactive discussion opportunity, with a panel available to answer questions.

                        I'm very much looking forward to this. :clap2: :angel::thumbs_up
                        I think it represents what could be a very pivotal moment in this profession, PT, and maybe even in the wider unconfined one of manual therapy.

                          Here is an announcement I sent out today about the Virtual Symposium on Pain taking place this November:

                          Hello there,

                          The Canadian Physiotherapy Association and its newly formed Pain Science Division are co-hosting a virtual symposium on pain in four parts throughout the month of November. This is the first "webinar" series in CPA's history, very exciting for everyone involved. Registrants will have access to each module for a week, to view as many times as desired, from every possible angle, take notes and write down questions. The fourth portion will be a live, interactive teleconference, where you may pose your questions and have them answered by a panel comprised of pain division members.

                          Outline of the workshops:

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

                          Workshop 2
                          How Pain Becomes Persistent
                          with Debbie Patterson
                          (Begins November 10)

                          Workshop 3
                          Assessment and Management Trends
                          with Neil Pearson
                          (Begins November 17)

                          Synthesis and Panel Discussion (Live)
                          (Date TBC)

                          Link to a fuller description:

                          Virtual Symposium on Pain


                          We are all involved in dealing with pain, whether we treat patients who have it or have family members with it or have it ourselves. This series is open to anyone interested in learning more about pain science - primarily it is directed toward working PTs, but everyone from any walk of life is cordially invited. The Pain Science division looks forward to seeing broad worldwide participation in this event - there is no upper limit to registration, so please feel free to pass this invitation to your colleagues and friends.

                          Thank you,
                          Diane Jacobs for the PSD of CPA
                          Remember, cost per person will go down if more than one person gathers around the computer! :clap2::angel::thumbs_up

                          Here's what it says on the CPA page:
                          This fall, the Canadian Physiotherapy Association in partnership with the Pain Science Division will host a Virtual Symposium on Pain.

                          Participate on your own time, at your own pace, and best of all – from the comfort of your own living room.

                          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.

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

                          Workshop 2
                          How Pain Becomes Persistent
                          with Debbie Patterson
                          (Begins November 10)

                          Workshop 3
                          Assessment and Management Trends
                          with Neil Pearson
                          (Begins November 17)

                          Synthesis and Panel Discussion (Live)
                          (Date TBC)


                          The Birth of the Pain Experience
                          Speaker: Dave Walton, PT, MSc, FCAMT, PhD(c)


                          This workshop will provide a broad perspective of the origins of pain. The purpose of pain and models which allow a circumspect view of pain will be discussed. Details of nociceptive physiology, and the processing of nociceptive input to the central nervous system assist participants in understanding how this system changes when pain persists, and why recent trends in treatment are being proven effective.
                          Learning objectives

                          After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:
                          1. Understand the importance of pain as necessary for survival.
                          2. Describe the most common pathways through which an intense stimulus goes from electrical signal to pain.
                          3. Describe the various junctions along these pathways at which the nociceptive signal can be modified.
                          4. Have a framework from which to conceptualize appropriate modifications to standard physiotherapy intervention when working with the patient with a persistent pain problem.

                          How Pain Becomes Persistent
                          Speaker: Debbie Patterson, P & OT Dip.


                          This workshop will summarize some of the current understanding of sensitization of the pain mechanism. It will address both the periphery and the central nervous system. These are essential for gaining a more complete picture of the patient with a persistent pain condition. Although mechanisms of sensitization can vary between musculoskeletal, visceral, trigeminal and neuropathic pain, the general principles are relevant for clinical practice.
                          Learning objectives

                          After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:
                          1. Understand a more complete presentation of the complexity of persistent pain.
                          2. Plan an appropriate treatment programme based on a current understanding of a persistent pain condition.

                          Assessment and Management Trends
                          Speaker: Neil Pearson, MSc, BScPT, PA-BPHE, Cert MDT, CYT


                          This workshop will address how a physiotherapist can apply current understanding of pain science to clinical practice. The focus will be on orthopaedic practice; however, the assessment techniques/tools and the management trends discussed will be relevant to a broad range of physiotherapy practice areas.
                          Learning objectives

                          After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:
                          1. Effectively recognize and assess the patient with persistent pain.
                          2. Use the assessment findings as measurements of treatment success.
                          3. Recognize how to apply aspects of current management trends into clinical practice, and when to collaborate with other health care professionals in the management of a person with persistent pain.
