European CME Forum is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to bringing together all stakeholder groups with an interest in European Continuing Medical Education (CME)/Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for healthcare professionals. It facilitates multi-channel discussion in an independent and neutral environment to promote the advance of high quality CME in Europe.
The 14th Annual European CME Forum will take place 3-5 November 2021 and we have made the decision to go Virtual again for 2021. The theme this year is The 3-legged stool: Achieving balance for effective CME. More information here. We have also recently launched our new Podcast where we will also maintain a steady flow of information in the run up to 14ECF.
Last November we met for the 13th Annual European CME Forum, take a look at the meeting page for downloads and more information. We are also releasing highlights during 2021 on social media, including in the new Podcast.

14th European CME Forum (#14ECF) – Virtual
Effective CME-CPD requires a stable relationship between three key factors, just as a three-legged stool requires all three legs to remain balanced. In this year’s meeting we will examine the spectrum of control and influence in each “leg”.
The Call for Abstracts for Posters as well as Workshops is also now open, more information below.
This week’s video presents highlights from the breakout session titled The future is now, led by Suzanne Murray (AXDEV), with Celeste Kolanko (Liberum IME) and Dale Kummerle (GAME). It is also available on our Podcast.
This is particularly relevant to the JECME 2021 Special Collection on ‘Digitization of Continuing Education in the Health Professions’, which is inviting article submissions until 17 September 2021.
