The WFH Virtual Summit: Connecting the Global Bleeding Disorders Community, being held from June 14 to 19, 2020, has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 19 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that they spent in the educational activity. The daily credit breakdown is as follows:
June 14, 2020: 4 credits
June 15, 2020: 3 credits
June 16, 2020: 3 credits
June 17, 2020: 3 credits
June 18, 2020: 3 credits
June 19, 2020: 3 credits
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes 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® credit to AMA credit 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®s, 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.
How do I claim credits?
To claim CME credits, participants will need to actively engage in the live sessions taking place during the conference days from June 14 to 19, 2020. They will also have to answer the respective session evaluations by June 20 (available once the live sessions have concluded).
To accumulate credits over the conference, delegates will need to participate in sessions from different time slots throughout the day. If they wish to accumulate the full amount possible for the day, they will need to participate and answer the evaluations of one session for each time slot.
