Evaluation & Certificates
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.
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 raise the quality of the events and evaluate the sessions. If you have suggestions on how EAN can improve, please contact us via email or visit us at the booth.
General Congress Evaluation
General Congress Evaluation will be available to all participants right after the congress – please make sure to give us your feedback and fill out the survey.
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 allow them to learn about the received feedback and consider it for future lectures. Moreover, speakers’ performance evaluation impacts planning and composition of faculty of future EAN congresses and other educational events.
The 8th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology - Europe 2022, Vienna, Austria, June 25-28, 2022, 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 they 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 at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
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 eaccme.uems.eu/Agreements.aspx a list of countries that accept EACCME accreditation.
Accreditation by the Austrian Academy of Physicians
The 8th EAN Congress 2022 has been accredited by the Austrian Academy of Physicians (“Akademie der Ärzte”), which is an official body accrediting medical events on behalf of the Austrian Medical Association. For detailed information, please check the platform here using the event ID 736638.
Please note that the accreditation by the Austrian Academy of Physicians is automatically recognised in Germany and Switzerland, therefore the collected CME points can be claimed in those countries without additional acceptance procedures.

The certificate of attendance includes a report of attendance with titles and duration of the evaluated sessions. With the certificate, every participant can address their national medical association concerning the CME points gained. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of points that they actually spent in the educational activity. Individual national regulations regarding the number of points acknowledged will apply.
Evaluation of the sessions will be available for onsite and online participation. Onsite participants are welcome to visit the “Self-registration/Evaluation station” or the MEET booth and evaluate the attended sessions there, should they not want to use their own devices.
If you need a CME certificate of attendance, please evaluate the attended sessions until 28 June 2022, 23:59 CEST.
