CME/CPD Accreditation


“The Patient Centered Meeting (PCM) on Diabetes, Dyslipidemia and Hypertension (PCM),Vienna, Austria, 31/10/2019-03/11/2019 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council
for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 17 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 www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

“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.”

EACCME® credits
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.

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.
