14th Annual European CME Forum

14th European CME Forum (#14ECF) – Virtual

The 3-legged stool: Achieving balance for effective CME

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 is still open, more information below.

Outline programme

Wednesday 3rd – Friday 5th November 2021

The 14th Annual European CME Forum will be run as a virtual meeting, broadcast in high quality from a central studio using an interactive platform. Leave behind the gloom of Zoom and join us in a productive and collaborative environment to explore European and global CME-CPD.

The theme this year is:

The 3-legged stool: Achieving balance for effective CME

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”:

  1. Rules and Regulation
  2. Educational Design and Outcomes
  3. Funding and Independence

We will gather leaders in the field to discuss and debate each of these topics, with plenty of opportunity for you to engage with your own questions and observations.

Whether or not you are planning to attend, please participate in the Annual CME survey there is a registration discount code to use of you decide to attend.
