    European CME in Practice: Update and Case History discussion

    [An amalgamated set of slides from Eugene and Robin is available here (Note 14MB PDF file)]

    The practices of - and regulations surrounding - European CME are evolving rapidly and this event provided a valuable opportunity to review recent developments and look forward to what's coming in the year ahead. The distinctions between promotional activity and accredited activity are fundamental and need to be properly understood by all involved in order to avoid red faces all round.

    Professor Robin Stevenson and Eugene Pozniak drew upon the expert discussions at the recent 4th Annual meeting of the European CME Forum, November 2011 in Amsterdam and explained the implications of the latest UEMS guidance document, The Accreditation of Live Educational Events by the EACCME (adopted by the UEMS Council on 7th October 2011).

    A case history approach was taken to understanding in detail what is the most appropriate approach that should be taken to gaining accreditation for European educational activities.
