The 8th International Conference of Acute Cardiac Care is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for 10 hours of External CME credits. Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity. EBAC works according to the quality standards of the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), which is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). Participants who wish to receive CME credits must register daily upon entry and departure. CME credit is dependent upon registration at the CME desk.
In compliance with EBAC/EACCME guidelines, all speakers/chairpersons participating in this programme have disclosed potential conflicts of interest that might cause a bias in the presentations. The Organising Committee is responsible for ensuring that all potential conflicts of interest relevant to the programme are declared to the audience prior to the CME activities.
