Claiming hours of credit
Each healthcare professional should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. Learners should complete the module and pass the relevant assessment. The delivery of a certificate of attendance is linked to the completion of this self-evaluation test after the lesson. A grade of 80% or more is required to pass.
The European Accreditation Council for CME (EACCME), was set up by the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) in response to a growing shift from voluntary to mandatory Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
EACCME’s purpose is to ensure international mutual recognition of quality CME-CPD assessment activities.
