Chronic Pain Management
Dr. Jovey, a family physician and emergency physician for 20 years, closed his practice in 1999, to focus on his twin interests of chronic pain management and addiction medicine. From 1991 – 2014 he was the Physician Director of the Credit Valley Hospital, Addictions and Concurrent Disorders Centre. Since 2005 he has been the Medical Director at CPM Centres for Pain Management, the largest, outpatient chronic pain management organization in Canada. He is also a staff physician at the Michael G. DeGroote Pain Clinic at Hamilton Health Sciences Centre in Hamilton. He is a Past-President of the Canadian Pain Society, a medico-legal expert for the Canadian Medical Protective Association and a provincial Coroner. For over 30 years, Dr. Jovey has been treating patients with chronic non-cancer pain in an outpatient practice setting. He has presented educational workshops and seminars on pain to health care professionals in Canada and internationally.
Monica Branigan is a family physician and associate professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine, University of Toronto. After diverse experiences in rural, rehab, student health and academic settings, she focused her clinical practice in palliative care. Her education experience is equally varied. Following a MHSc (Bioethics) at the Joint Centre for Bioethics at the University of Toronto, she was responsible for the ethics and professionalism teaching the University of Toronto Medical School from 2002 to 2008. She taught postgraduates ethics, palliative care and communication skills. At the faculty level she was Professional Development Lead for the Division of Palliative Care. Currently she is on the faculty for the Physician Leadership Institute with Joule where she teaches Professionalism and Ethics and is a trainer for Crucial Conversations. She continues training and teaching in mindfulness and compassion skills for physicians. Monica is very curious about how to move the discussion about physician wellness from personal resiliency to environments that support sustainable practice.
Gaétan is a Consultant at the University Health Network and a Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto. He obtained his medical degree at l’Université Laval and holds diplomas in sports medicine and electrodiagnostic medicine. Gaetan was previously Physiatrist in Chief and Medical Program Director, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, a hospital of the University Health Network. He continues to be involved in leadership development at Joule, where he teaches strategic thinking and entry into practice workshops. He obtained the ICD.D designation from the Institute of Corporate Directors in 2016. He is a Past-President of the Canadian Society of Physician Leaders and of the Canadian Association of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. Gaétan was also the President and Chair of the Board of the Canadian Paralympic Committee from 2013 to 2017.
This course is designed for family physicians, specialists, and allied health care professionals. The aim is to provide evidence-based material, as well as practical and relevant clinical pearls that will be easy to implement into one’s own medical practice. Conference attendees will be invited to complete a pre-course Needs Assessment to assist the faculty with the development of their presentations.

Each year, during the winter months, travellers journey to Iceland and venture out into the dark to see the magical but elusive northern lights (aurora borealis). This natural phenomenon is the product of collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere; the results are spectacular! Streaks of colourful light appear across the sky. The colours can vary from white to pink or purple and, most commonly, green. It is known that the best time to witness the lights in Iceland is from late September to mid-April, when the nights are the longest. This light show is truly dazzling and worth the pursuit.
