CME credits

The 24rd Congress of the European Sleep Research Society, Basel, Switzerland, 25/09/2018-

28/09/2018 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical

Education (EACCME®) with 28 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 at


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 CME accreditation is valid for the main congress programme and the teaching courses only and does not cover the company-sponsored satellite symposia.


Certificates of attendance indicating the CME credits are available as from Friday, 28 September 2018, in the afternoon after completing a survey on the congress.
