The European Lung Cancer Congress 2018 was organised by top academic experts in lung cancer and thoracic malignancies.
ESMO-MORA: The ELCC 2018 programme has been accredited with 25 Cat.1 ESMO MORA points. Recertification is necessary for medical oncologists to remain professionally certified by ESMO. It also guarantees that a certified medical oncologist has continued to update her/his knowledge and still possesses the necessary skills and standards for the practice of medical oncology See here for further details.
CME: The Congress programme has been also accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 21 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hourse of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found here
The Congress webcasts will include all the sessions of the official programme, where speaker permission is granted, and will be available on this website and OncologyPRO for ESMO members.
