PAIN AWARENESS AWARD 2021
APPLICATION DEADLINE: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2020
The Canadian Pain Society (CPS) presents the Pain Awareness Award to the candidate(s) with the Best Pain Awareness Project. The goals of the award are to raise awareness of the problem of undermanaged pain in Canada, to highlight efforts towards finding solutions to the problem, and to reach a wide Canadian audience. The selection will be made by a committee formed by the Canadian Pain Society.
The award consists of:
• $250 honorarium
• Complimentary 2021 Scientific Meeting registration
• One (1) page brief description of candidate’s project, including impact on target audience (max 1 page)
• Projects involving 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. The CPS encourages projects using several forms of expression and group submissions and submissions from different backgrounds and disciplines are preferred (i.e. projects combining science and art, collaborations between persons living with pain and health care providers).
• The recipient(s) will be invited to present their project at the 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting. 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. The CPS may seek permissions to reproduce the work to continue raising awareness.
All documents must be combined and uploaded into one PDF file that is no larger than 30 MB.
