Maarit Venermo (Helsinki, Finland) talks about how CX Aortic Vienna will offer “high quality education” to people treating aortic diseases, and discusses her presentation at this inaugural event, titled ‘Ultrasound surveillance versus CT surveillance after EVAR’.
CX Aortic Vienna, which will be livestreamed on 8, 9, 10 and 11 September 2020 and include audience participation, discussion and polling, has just received accreditation for 12 EU/US reciprocal CME credits.
The CX Aortic Vienna 2020, London (live streaming), United Kingdom, 08/09/2020-11/09/2020 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 12 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 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.
