One hundred and thirty speakers and delegates met in London for the fifth annual meeting of the European CME Forum which took place on 15 and 16 November 2012. Over the two days, current and future trends in European Continuing Medical Education (CME) were examined, discussed and debated. The meeting employed a mixture of styles: plenary presentations, workshops and panel discussion, but with a high focus on open question-and-answer interaction between speakers and delegates. The predominant target audience comprised people with an interest in European CME including the accreditation bodies, scientific societies, education providers, medical communications agencies and industry supporters. Each interest group had a dedicated meeting on the day before the formal programme; European pharmaceutical company involvement, scientific societies and the Good CME Practice Group which announced that following the publication of its recent work, it was opening its membership to all qualifying providers. A pre-meeting needs assessment was carried out which informed the programme structure and led to a more interactive format. Session themes included the new European Accreditation Council for CME (EACCME) accreditation criteria, e-learning, panel discussions with experts from throughout Europe as well as CME professionals from the USA, Canada, India and Australia.Keywords: CME, proceedings, Europe, 2012, CPD(Published: 22 July 2013)DOI: 10.3109/21614083.2013.812965
