The Tenth Annual European CME Forum

Registration now open!

This year we are delighted to be presenting the 10th Annual European CME Forum in collaboration with, and at the home of, the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI). 

Wednesday 8th – Friday 10th November 2017 in Dublin, Ireland

The Early Bird registration rate will be live until 20 September (click here to register). The annual Needs Assessment which helps drive the agenda and guide the faculty is also ongoing; we present the outcomes at the meeting and if you register there is a further 10% discount available for offering your insight into the current state of CME – click here to participate – even if you are not coming to the meeting.

First details about the programme are now available. You will see we have structured the 48 hours we are together in three main themes – INWARD, OUTWARD and ONWARD. Each theme will start in the main meeting room, we then split into individual workshops to delve deeper into specific topics. To conclude we all gather for a reflection session where the key take-away messages from each workshop are discussed as a whole group.

We are also be accepting Posters this year, with the possibility of inviting those that can bolster the programme to also give a presentation. More information here and the application form here.

Dublin does not have a large hotel that we could adopt as a “conference hotel”, but we have selected two hotels close to each other and the RCPI and secured some rooms at a conference rate. We are working with Abbey as our logistics parter this year who can offer help with accommodation and any on-site requirements you may have. You will see a number of options when you register, but as usual check for best rates available however you can. There is also a Hilton option if you need it, which a little further away, but still within walking distance.

Part of the reason we are a little later than usual in opening registration is that we have been in discussions with the Irish tax authority (which are still ongoing) about the VAT portion of the ticket price – important for individuals and non-EU companies – this stands at 23% in Ireland – and we are aiming to agree a reduction. But we cannot wait any longer for the decision. If we are successful, and you have already registered, then we will be able to reimburse the portion on your registration and issue a revised invoice.

We have also reduced the registration rates again this year as we continue to reduce our expenses in line with expectations in CME, and with thanks to our grantors, sponsors and in-kind collaborators. We aim to break even with the meeting with any surplus going to running JECME and the educational support activities that we carry out at European CME Forum.

Finally, if you don’t need to leave Dublin straight after the meeting ends, we have worked out with Abbey a few leisure activities exclusively for #10ECF participants for the Friday afternoon. So if you wish, you can enjoy a little more of the city with connections and friends you make at the meeting. More information on the registration pages.

All about what we do ourselves in the provision of accredited CME activities. The practicalities around developing activities, covering the basic concepts as well as offering guidance for the seasoned expert, from educational design, planning, outcomes evaluation and incorporating education in the professional setting.


Listening to others. How to incorporate the viewpoint, objectives, motivations and requirements of related groups and individuals to the CME process – such as patients, learners, government, regulators, and industry.


Putting things into practice. CME is increasingly delivered by a collaboration, and involving a more diverse audience. We take a look at how new technology, collaborations, partnerships and interprofessional dialogue are helping to make CME more relevant and effective.
