Continuing Medical Education (CME) Credits
The 42nd European Cystic Fibrosis Conference, Liverpool, UK, 5 – 8 June 2019 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®), with 19 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Each participant can only receive the number of credits he/she is entitled to according to his/her actual participation at the event once he/she has completed the feedback form. Cf. criteria 9 and 23 of UEMS 2016.20.
In order to help you issue individual certificates to each participant, please find below the breakdown of ECMEC®s per day:
The EACCME® awards ECMEC®s on the basis of 1 ECMEC® for one hour of CME with a maximum of 8 ECMEC®s per day. Cf. Chapter X of UEMS 2016.20.
In order to receive CME credits for your Conference participation you have to make sure that your badge is scanned every day, morning AND afternoon, at the entrance.
