CME Information for ISTH 2013
Wednesday, July 31, 2013
Thank you for your attendance at the ISTH 2013 Congress! We appreciate your support and participation in a successful Congress. Please read on to find further information about CME credits from the Congress, particularly for US physicians trying to obtain credit.
General CME Information:
ISTH 2013 is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.net.
ISTH 2013 is designated for a maximum of 35 hours of European external CME credits. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
EACCME credits are recognised by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). To convert EACCME credit to AMA PRA category 1 credit, contact the AMA.
ISTH 2013 has been accredited by the European Hematology Association (EHA) with 35 credit points.
All participants may print a European Hematology Association CME System approved CME certificate indicating the number of EHA-CME Credit Points awarded, directly from the system on the CME section of the EHA website at www.ehaweb.org.
An EHA-CME Credit Point account will be used by all interested participants. Participants will receive a login after the meeting which will allow them to complete the online evaluation in order to obtain the EHA credits.
For US Physicians Trying to Obtain CME Credit:
There were two types of credits offered at ISTH 2013: credit through EHA, and credit through EACCME. The EACCME credits are the ones that are reciprocal with the US ACCME (AMA).
In order to obtain credit for ISTH 2013, you will need to use your certificate of attendance with the EACCME credit information. This certificate can be obtained through the ISTH 2013 secretariat if you do not already have this information.
Once you have this certificate, please use the AMA website to submit your hours and register for credit by following the EACCME credit conversion application. This information can be found online here:
