Continuing Medical Education credits

The 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health, The Hague, The Netherlands, has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 31 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

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 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found here.

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.

The 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health, The Hague, The Netherlands, has been accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP) with 30 continuing medical education (CME) credits.

The form can be left at the Registration Desk or sent to The Union Secretariat at scientific@theunion.org.

Medtech conference vetting system

The Conference Vetting System (CVS) is a unique initiative in the healthcare industry.  It is a centralised decision-making system that encourages transparency and consistency in medical education events and alleviates the complex administrative burden previously faced by MedTech Europe and Mecomed members, who were constrained to make their own determinations on whether or not a third-party educational event they wished to provide support to was compliant with the associations’ respective Codes.

The 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health is compliant with the MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice.
