11th Annual European CME Forum
CME as a Change Management Engine
In November 2018 over 120 people gathered at the The King’s Fund – “the think-tank of the NHS” in London for the 11th Annual European CME Forum. We had a mixture of plenary room presentations and discussions and the break-out workshops. This year we focussed more on the outputs of the workshops for whole room discussions to ensure that all topics were covered.
We will keep updating this page as information and outputs become available. Make sure you are signed up to receive our updates and keep in touch with any thoughts and comments as we plan for the next meeting
The 12th Annual European CME Forum will take place 6-8 November 2019, University of Manchester, UK.
