Quality and diversity in EAN
The main mission of EAN is to ensure excellence in Neurology. In order to guarantee the quality of the upcoming congresses, we are carrying out a general congress evaluation and evaluation of all individual sessions.
The general evaluation of the congress will be sent to all participants after the congress. Evaluation of the attended sessions will be possible during the session and until the end of the congress.
EAN cares about diversity and asks speakers from different countries to speak at the sessions. Since 50% of EAN’s congress participants are female, it is important for us that there is also a gender balance of speakers. When proposing sessions and speakers for the congress, our panels are asked to include not only famous speakers, but also young rising stars. All feedback given during EAN meetings will be evaluated by our Ethics and Quality Task Force and considered for the next congresses.
Please help EAN to raise the quality of EAN events and evaluate the sessions. If you do have suggestions on how EAN can improve, please come to the EAN virtual booth.
If you want to learn more about EAN’s approach to the evaluations and quality assessment, please check this article on EANpages.
Session evaluation provides feedback not only concerning the quality of the session itself, but it is also an assessment of speakers’ performance. It shows if the performance and the presented content were up to the participants’ expectations. Evaluation results, analysed by the Ethics and Quality Task Force, are forwarded in form of an individualised report to the speakers, which allows them to learn about the received feedback and consider it for future lectures. Moreover, speaker’s performance evaluation impacts planning and composition of faculty of future EAN congresses and other educational events.
The 6th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology - Virtual, 23.05.2020-26.05.2020 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 25 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found here.
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Please find here a list of countries that accept EACCME accreditation.
If you need a report of your attendance in sessions, please evaluate all sessions that you have attended. Once evaluation of the sessions is complete, you can obtain a certificate, including all sessions attended, under “My Certificate” in “My Congress” area and in MyEAN area after the congress. CME Certificates will be available to the participants of all sessions, upon completing evaluation. Viewing and evaluating of the on-demand sessions have been extended until Friday, 29 May 2020, 23:59 CEST.
For viewing and evaluating the webcasts of the Virtual Congress 2020 from 30 May 2020 onwards, certificates without CME credits will be available.
If you are watching the congress in a team, please make sure that you are still logged in to the session with your personal device and evaluate the session in order to receive your certificate.
CME Certificates, including a record of attendance, will be available to the participants of the live streamed and on-demand sessions of the congress (23-26 May 2020), who have evaluated them. Viewing and evaluating of sessions on-demand have been extended until Friday, 29 May 2020, 23:59 CEST.
CME Certificates, including a record of attendance, will be available only to the participants of all educational and scientific sessions (23-26 May 2020) who have evaluated them. Evaluation is possible until Tuesday, 26 May 2020, 23:59 CET.
