About the Award

The Canadian Pain Society (CPS) and the Canadian Pain Coalition (CPC) present this award for the Best Pain Awareness Project. The goal of the award is to raise awareness about the problem of inadequately treated/managed pain in Canada and to reach a wide Canadian audience. Projects involving the electronic or printed media, visual, fine arts, dance, music or other creative expressions will be considered. If you wish to submit an extra item to support the project (e.g. DVD, CD, Book) please send (3) copies. Collaborations among applicants from different backgrounds and disciplines are preferred. This might include projects combining the sciences and the arts or collaborations between persons living with pain and health care providers. The CPS and CPC encourage projects using several forms of expression and group submissions. The recipient will be invited to present their project at the annual conference in 2017. The format of the presentation (e.g. poster, concurrent session, display table) will be determined by the awardee in collaboration with the Scientific Program Committee.


Deadline Date

Submissions through our online form or, if providing a book, DVD, CD or other hard copy format, by mail to: Canadian Pain Society, 250 Consumers Road, Suite 301, Toronto, ON, M2J 4V6.
