Is there CME Accreditation?
The 6th World Summit on Pediatrics in Lisbon, 18-21 June 2020, will apply to be accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®).
The EACCME® is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.net
Each medical specialist should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credits to AMA credits 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® credits 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.
If I submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation must I deliver or may a co-author present?
Yes, you, or one of the co-authors may present the paper.
My abstract was accepted for the 2020 conference but I was unable to attend. Will I be able to present the same abstract or must I re-submit it for approval?
Under such circumstances the abstract should be re-submitted through the 2021 Abstract system.
