Continuing Medical Education

Continuing Medical Education – Continuing Professional Development (CME-CPD)

The European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) (or) 13th EADV Spring Symposium is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists.
The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.net

The 13th EADV Spring Symposium is designated for a maximum of (or ‘for up to’) 15 hours of European external CME credits. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme.

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognized by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMEC credits 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.

EACCME credits

A maximum of 6 European CME Credits (ECMEC) will be granted for a full-day attendance and 3 for half day. You are encouraged to pass by the CME-CPD Booth located on the Ground floor if you have any questions.

Procedure

The EADV offers individual CME-CPD participation through the scanning of the bar code on the registration badge. Hostesses will scan the badge as participants pass through the entrance of each session hall. Several seconds will be required to ensure the badges are scanned correctly.

A minimum attendance for half of the session is required to qualify for CME-CPD accreditation of that session and each participant will be accredited only with the actual hours spent in sessions as recorded by the scanning process.

Participants will be logged out of the session as they scan their badge when leaving the session hall.

A speaker/session evaluation form will be available as you enter each session hall and should be completed and deposited with the hostesses when you leave. The form is only available at the time of the session.

Evaluation data is essential to our statistics and is of considerable help in the choice of future topics and speakers. Your feedback and comments are greatly appreciated.

Certification and Personal Speaker Evaluation Data

CME certificates will be available to download for a period of one year from www.eadvathens2016.org for processing with the national authority in your country of practice.

It will be possible to change and modify your address if desired. The remainder of the certificate is write-protected.

For the download you will need to enter your registration number (which appears on your badge). Certificates will not be mailed and copies will not be available after the one-year cutoff.

Personal evaluation data, collected from the completed evaluation forms, will be automatically sent to the speakers. All data is treated confidentially and is generally available several months after the event. It is also envisaged to publish the top ten sessions in the EADV News.

Please refer to the national CME-CPD authority in your country of practice for the exchange of CME-CPD credits/points.
