Organizing committee

The Quebec Network of Junior Pain Investigators (QNJPI) is proud to organize the 8th edition of the PAINtalks, which will take place at the Zoo de Granby on November 2nd, 2023 at 18:30 p.m. 

Le  PAINtalks is an evening of popular conferences on the theme of pain. It is a bilingual initiative, free and open to all, which is inspired by the “TED” presentation formula. Speakers are invited to submit their candidacy to present at the evening in order to communicate their research.

The team behind PAINtalks brings together students in the field of radiation sciences and biomedical imaging, experimental surgery, rehabilitation sciences, virtual rehabilitation, health sciences and psychology. 

More than 800 people signed up for the PAINtalks 2022 from all over Quebec, several other Canadian provinces, as well as other countries around the world. A simultaneous translation service was offered to everyone attending the event, in person or online. All the presentations were filmed in high definition, then made available to Internet users with English and French subtitles via our website, our YouTube channel, our Twitter account and our Facebook page.

Like last year, the PAINtalks has once again partnered with three influential networks in the field of pain at the national and international levels, either with the Canadian Pain Society (CPS), la North American Pain School (NAPS) and l'European Pain School (EPS). These partnerships will, among other things, make it possible to offer a place for two of the speakers to participate in the next edition of the CPS and the NAPS.

In addition, partnerships with chronic pain networks have expanded and solidified for the 2023 edition of the PAINtalks : I'Association québécoise de douleur chronique (AQDC), theAssociation de soutien et d'information face à la douleur (ASID), Société québécoise de fibromyalgie (SQF), Migraine Quebec, Société québécoise de la douleur (SQD), Quebec pain research network (QPRN) and l'Association des stomisés Richelieu-Yamaska.
