Outline programme

Timings and structure

#11ECF will be presented with a blend of plenary sessions, panel discussions and workshops. The meeting this year will follow three overall themes:
     CHANGE: Techniques and practicalities to promote change – educational design, planning, outcomes evaluation and incorporating education in the professional setting
     MANAGEMENT: Management of requirements and meeting the needs of related groups to the CME process –  patients, learners, accreditors, industry, government, regulators, etc.
     ENGINE:  Tools and Engines. Putting new and innovative ideas and techniques into practice.
We have now opened the Call for Abstracts for poster and oral presentations. There is plenty of time to reflect on your thoughts and practice to identify suitable topics – deadline is 1 October 2018. Take a look here for more information – and click here for the Application Form  – email us if you would like it in Word format, and do get in contact if you have any questions or ideas you would like to discuss first.

As we discussed last November in Dublin, we will be looking to implement some new planning processes for #11ECF this year. We will be inviting a number of people from each stakeholder group to contribute to the planning and development of the meeting, and we will also be looking to provide additional education, content and guidance throughout the year. Take a look at the reports, presentations, outcomes and even a few photographs from last year’s meeting here.

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.


We are able to reduce the registration rate again this year, and in the run-up to Brexit the Euro and Dollar seem to keep going even further in the UK! Do the Annual CME Survey and insert the code in the top right hand corner of the first pop-up window. The Academic Rate is for people working in Medical Societies, academic, healthcare professionals and accreditation bodies. Write to us if you are planning on a block booking or have any questions.

Once again we will be at an academic venue rather than a hotel. We do not have a “conference hotel” as it is not possible to negotiate favourable rates in London for a meeting of our size, but there is a great range of hotels in the area at all levels of pricing. Be aware that hotel prices go up and down on a daily basis, more so in London, so do shop around to find the best deal. To help you out we have put together a list of places within walking distance and some handy tips for your stay.Register
