Event description


Surrounded by soaring mountain peaks, the majestic Victoria Glacier and a glistening emerald lake, the iconic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise hotel is located in Alberta's Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is recognized globally for progressive environmental stewardship and responsible tourism.

Our 14th Annual Pain Society of Alberta Conference will occur at this beautiful venue from October 16 - 18th, 2020. This event will include health care providers from across Western Canada who share a common goal and interest in advocating to improve the well-being of patients living with persistent pain.

Conference content will be carefully chosen to incorporate well-balanced, informative and relevant presentations, from well known and experienced speakers, on a wide variety of pain related topics. Physicians and clinicians alike will be empowered with up-to-date tools and improved management strategies to implement changes and improve their clinical practice.

We are hoping you can join us and all of your colleagues across the province for this amazing opportunity.
