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.
We do have plans for 2021, but like everything, it is all labelled “to be confirmed”! We have secured a great venue in Barcelona for the 14th Annual European CME Forum to take place 3-5 November 2021. Depending on how the pandemic develops we will either meet there, or we will have a virtual meeting on those days. We will decide later in the year. More information here.
Last November we met for the 13th Annual European CME Forum, the theme was: European and global CME: what next? Take a look at the meeting page for downloads and more information. We will be releasing highlights of the meeting as we approach #14ECF.
Our PubMed-indexed Open Access journal, Journal of European CME (JECME), has launched the 2021 Special Collection: Digitization of Continuing Education in the Health Professions. Submissions are being accepted on a rolling basis with a final deadline of 17 September, visit JECME for more.
This website has a wealth of information about our past activities, European CME Forum offers the largest resource about CME in Europe – anywhere whether online or in print – covering our 13 years of activities, with reports and presentations from over 240 hours of live presentations and workshops given by over 370 faculty.
Please keep in touch with your ideas and contributions. Make sure you are signed up for the newsletter – see the column on the right – as we release information about our ongoing activities through 2021 which will culminate with the 14th Annual European CME Forum.
As always, do please let us know your news, thoughts or ambitions for international CME.
