Continuing Medical Education (CME)
An application has been made to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) for CME accreditation of this event. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS, www.uems.net).
Medical specialists should only claim those hours of credit actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the UEMS and the American Medical Association (AMA), physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA Physician’s Recognition Award Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credits to AMA credits can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme.
Live educational activities occurring outside of Canada that are recognized by the UEMS-EACCME for European CME 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.
