European CME Forum is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to bringing together all stakeholder groups with an interest in European Continuing Medical Education. It facilitates multi-channel discussion in an independent and neutral environment to promote the advance of high quality CME in Europe.
We have now had our 11th Annual European CME Forum – 7-9 November 2018, which took place at The King’s Fund – “the think-tank of the NHS” in central London, UK. See the meeting page for further information and downloads as we prepare them.
While we are working on these, you may be interested in this recent publication “Ascent to the Summit of the CME Pyramid” in JAMA by Robin Stevenson and Don Moore, about measuring outcomes in CME. Robin is also the Editor-in-Chief of our own Diamond open access peer review and now PubMed Indexed, Journal of European CME (JECME). JECME is in the midst of publishing a series of manuscripts from across all the stakeholder groups in European CME, with some fascinating, and even contentious viewpoints being presented, take a look and engage yourself in the discussion here. Don Moore has also published a successor paper to his original work describing the Outcomes Framework, titled “A conceptual framework for planning and assessing learning in continuing education activities designed for clinicians in one profession and/or clinical teams“, having worked with his co-authors, who were also co-presenters, to test these concepts in practice at European CME Forum, and other meetings.
Please keep in touch with your ideas and contributions, and we will keep this page updated with details as they are worked out. Make sure you are signed up for the newsletter – see the column on the right — and keep in touch as we put plans in place for the next meeting: #12ECF will be at the University of Manchester 5-8 November 2019 (“Day 0” meetings on the 5th with the main programme starting late morning on Thursday 6th).
