Continuing Medical Education
Staying ahead of the curve
The shift to online and hybrid events caught the industry ‘on-the-hop’ in 2020, especially when it comes to STM (Science, Technical and Medical) events where often delegates have mandatory attendance requirements.
Rethinking and redefining
Not only that but some delegates are used to their attendance being funded because they contribute to the content of the conference through delivery of a presentation, a poster or submitting an abstract. Delegates need to evidence their attendance for continuing medical education (CME) purposes through completion of evaluation forms and watching specific modules. This attendance record must be kept for audit purposes for the accrediting body, and delegate certificates of attendance based on the evaluations are also required.
With a phased return to face-to-face events starting to happen, albeit on a smaller scale than before, there is an opportunity for event organisers to rethink how conferences could and should work in the future, and how technology could bridge the gap to ensure continued debate, interdisciplinary engagement and networking regardless of how delegates attend.
