ACOE and the renewed agreement with the UEMS/EACCME

Following the newly approved guidelines for the accreditation of live educational events by the EACCME (document UEMS 2012/30 approved by the UEMS Council on 19th October 2012 and entered into force on 14 January 2013), ACOE and the UEMS/EACCME have signed a new agreement.


ACOE’s criteria are now fully in line with those of the UEMS / EACCME and all applications for live events must be submitted directly via the UEMS online system.


Under this agreement, ACOE's Councillors retain their role of rewievers for oncology-related live events, while EACCME will submit all eligible applications in the field of Oncology for their evaluation to ACOE.

Why CME ?

CME (continuing medical education) can be defined as educational activities which serve to maintain, develop and increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance that physicians and allied health professionals use to provide services for patients, the public or the profession.


Why an accreditation Council of Oncology in Europe (ACOE)?

Europe is moving away from a voluntary perspective on continuing professional development, towards a more mandatory system.

ACOE is the unique European multidisciplinary accreditation body in oncology. ACOE accreditation offers participants of CME events in oncology a guarantee of a high quality and unbiaised educational programme.
