How many CME Credits will I be able to earn at Euroanaesthesia 2022?

Accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) is an essential component of continuing physician professional development. Accreditation is of utmost importance – both as a proof of top quality of the scientific contents of the congress and as an opportunity for delegates to collect their CME credits. 

The European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education Institution of the UEMS, EACCME has granted:

  • 17 CME Credits for Euroanaesthesia 2022 (04 – 06 June)
  • 2 CME Credits for attending the Special Trauma Workshop* over lunchtime

* Delegates need to register for the Special Trauma Workshop for a fixed fee.

CME Credit breakdown by day:

  • 06 CME Credits for Day 1 of the Euroanaesthesia 2022 (04 June 2022)
  • 06 CME Credits for Day 2 of the Euroanaesthesia 2022 (05 June 2022)
  • 05 CME Credits for Day 3 of the Euroanaesthesia 2022 (06 June 2022)

Delegates can exchange their EACCME credits into National CME credits in their home country. 

Physicians may have their EACCME credits converted to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit by applying to the American Medical Association at www.ama-assn.org/go/cme. 

How do I claim my CME credits?

You can claim your credits by attending the sessions each day and evaluating those sessions. You can access the evaluation platform two ways:

  1. Directly on http://certificates.esaic.org by using either your myESAIC credentials or badge/e-badge number to login.
  2. Via the virtual platform, by clicking on the link “Evaluate” within each session and using either your myESAIC credentials or e-badge number to login.

Who is eligible to earn CME credits?

All delegates who attend the congress are eligible to earn CME credits.

How can I amend my abstract?

It is still possible to make corrections to an abstract prior to the submission deadline, even if it has already been submitted. The abstract can be saved, edited and revised online as many times as needed until the submission period ends.

After the submission period, corrections are no longer possible. If errors are discovered in the abstract after the deadline, you can either withdraw the abstract or – for minor errors – indicate the correction during a presentation at the congress. Please note, changes will not be included in the published version of the abstract. We, therefore, recommend carefully review your abstract before submitting it on the dedicated submission platform.

Can I change the presenter of an Abstract after the submission deadline?

The abstract submitter can login to the abstract submission platform through his/her MyESAIC account and select, in the authors section, another presenter for the abstract. The new presenter must be selected among the authors of the abstract.

All mandatory information should be filled in as appropriate.

The new presenter must pre-register for the Congress by 20 April 2022 (23:59 CET).

If a change of presenter is requested after 20 April 2022, the new presenter will have to be registered for the congress before the change is possible. The original presenter is responsible for providing the new presenter with all information previously sent by ESAIC regarding the abstract.

What is the registration process of the Abstract presenter?

If the abstract is accepted, the work must be presented at Euroanaesthesia 2022.

Accepted Abstract Presenters must pre-register for the Congress before 20 April 2022 (23:59 CET)!

If a presenter fails to register before 20 April:

  • The abstract(s) will not be published in the e-supplement of the European Journal of Anaesthesiology and will be rejected for presentation at the Congress.
  • The abstract(s) will be withdrawn by the ESAIC and removed from all Euroanaesthesia-related publications.

View the applicable Congress registration fees.

What are the Abstract publication details?

All accepted abstracts will be published in their entirety as an e-supplement to the European Journal of Anaesthesiology (EJA). If prior consent is received, posters will also be made available online. Note that publication of the accepted abstract is dependent on pre-registration of the abstract presenter.

If accepted for presentation at the congress, the abstract will be published as entered into the abstract submission programme.

What if there are time conflicts when presenting several abstracts?

We usually avoid scheduling several abstract presentations by the same person at the same time. Unfortunately, considering the high number of abstracts presented at the Congress, time conflicts may still occur and presentations cannot be rescheduled. Should this happen, please consider the following options:

  • Ask a co-author attending the congress to present one of the abstracts for you.
  • Ask the chairpersons of the sessions in which your abstracts have been scheduled to be the first to present in one session and the last in the other. This way you can present both abstracts yourself.

I still have an unanswered question. Whom can I contact?

If you have any questions regarding your abstract submission, please contact the ESAIC Secretariat via abstracts@esaic.org.

When contacting the ESAIC Head Quarters in relation to an abstract, please always mention the abstract reference (#xxxx) and title.

I am interested in Sponsorship opportunities for Euroanaesthesia

There will be virtual booths, symposia, meet the expert sessions, online advertising possibilities, and more. Please consult our Industry opportunities page for more information.
