CME ACCREDITATION AND CERTIFICATES
Participants will be issued a certificate of attendance.
Application for CME recognition has been submitted to ESMO for ESMO-MORA accreditation, to the Accreditation Council of Oncology in Europe (ACOE) and to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). The event was granted 9 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
EACCME credits are recognized by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). EACCME certificate will be recognised by the Irish Postgraduate Training Bodies and Irish participants will be entitled to record these credits for purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CDP).
