Note that both Accredication Boards (EBAP & EACCME) granted 27 European CME credits for the ERS International Congress Programme 2015. NB: The Netherland Pulmonary Physician Society (NVALT) has accredited with 20 CMW points the ERS Congress 2015.
Recognition of CME credits
For accredited activities, EACCME credits can be exchanged for their national equivalent by contacting your national CME authority. EACCME credits are recognised throughout Europe and in North America.
A record of your CME credit status will also be kept for future reference.
To receive credits
Printing or downloading your CME and attendance certificates can only be done online after the Congress.
Login into MyERS and either press the highlighted "Congress Certificates" button as shown below or alternatively go through the menu "Congress and Conferences > Get your certificates".
Please make sure you keep your badge number as it will be required for your identification.
Physicians should only claim those hours of credit spent in this educational activity.
Disclaimer: the Early Morning Symposia, Practical Workshops, Evening Symposia, Evening Mini-Symposia, Evening Expert Forum are organised by industry. You cannot claim CME credits for attending these sessions.
European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP)
The ERS Congress programme is reviewed by EBAP each year to provide quality assurance and continuing medical education accreditation (CME) for the event.
This means that delegates at the Congress can be awarded internationally recognised CME credits for attending the sessions.
EBAP is an independent entity that works to ensure the quality and independence of CME activities. It operates under the supervision of a Management Council composed of four members who are nominated by the Forum of European Respiratory Societies.
