    Journal of European CME

    Journal of European CME (JECME)

    JECME provides an invaluable service to the European CME-CPD community by publishing an ethical peer-reviewed journal for research findings and reviews.

    JECME is solely focused on the practical application of European CME-CPD methods, techniques and case studies, as well as opinion pieces on European CME-CPD regulatory issues.

    OVERVIEW

    The inaugural meeting of the Good CME Practice Group (gCMEp) took place during the Second Annual European CME Forum meeting in London, 18-19 November 2009, where the overarching guiding principles were discussed by leading education providers involved in European CME programme development, with input from members from the CME and pharma communities.

    European CME is developing under its own inertia, working to converging standards and agreements: the CME bodies are working ever closer together, and pharmaceutical industry supporters are now under regulatory pressure to align themselves with CME in a positive way.

    The aim of the gCMEp Group is to look specifically at how the European education provider/agency community works in CME and to develop the appropriate operating standards.

    Since that first meeting in London, the gCMEp Group have continued their discussions, consulted widely with national and European medical societies, as well as national and pan-European CME accreditation bodies, and agreed to pursue the definition of the standards of Good CME Practice along 4 Core Principles:

    Appropriate education
    CME providers should ensure that educational activities have clear learning objectives that are derived from a coherent and objective process that has identified performance gaps and unmet educational needs. The education must be designed to positively reinforce existing good practice and effect a sustained change in daily clinical practice as appropriate.

    Balance
    Balance needs to be evident in content, faculty and review. Content has to be developed independently of the sponsor and reflect the full clinical picture within the framework of the learning objectives.

    Transparency
    All relevant information should be disclosed to the learner so that they understand fully how the content has been developed and presented. This includes the terms of the financial support, relevant disclosures of faculty and organisations involved in the development of the scientific content and the presentation of the programme.

    Effectiveness
    Post-activity evaluation should measure satisfaction, knowledge uptake and intent to maintain or change behaviour in line with learning objectives.

    The results of this consultation have now been published; Setting CME standards in Europe: guiding principles for medical education by Sheelagh Farrow, Darren Gillgrass, Alisa Pearlstone, Jack Torr, Eugene Pozniak, published in Current Medical Research and Opinion, 9 October 2012.

    This work and how the principles can be put into everyday practice will continue to be discussed. Any European providers who would like to participate in this initiative are invited to contact Programme Director, Eugene Pozniak.
