CME/CPD Accreditation


Accreditation Statement and Credit Designation

 

European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (UEMS/EACCME):

 

“The 34th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ESCMID Global 2024, formerly known as ECCMID) in Barcelona, Spain, 27/04/2024 - 30/04/2024, has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 30.0 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.”

 

“Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at https://edhub.ama-assn.org/pages/applications .”

 

“Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.”

The EACCME® awards ECMEC®s on the basis of 0,5 ECMEC® for 30 minutes of CME with a maximum of 8 ECMEC®s per day. cf. Chapter XIII of UEMS 2023.07.

 

People viewing the recordings during the six-month period after the event has taken place are entitled to CME credits, in the same way as the participants to the live event. The credits are granted, as for the live event, on the basis of actual “participation”, i.e. how many hours of CME the participants have viewed.

 

The maximum number of credits granted for watching the recordings will be the same as for the live event and cannot exceed this number whatever the number of sessions attended or viewed. A participant may not obtain credits forparticipating at the live event and watching the same sessions as recordings.

 

 

 

Disclosure and Resolution of Personal Conflicts of Interest

 

In accordance with CME/CPD accreditation criteria and standards for commercial support to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigour, those in control of the educational content must disclose potential or actual conflicts of interest. Disclosure information is evaluated and conflicts of interest resolved. Disclosure is made to participants prior to the activity. Participants will be asked on the evaluation to assess the objectivity and independence of the event.
