Continuing Medical Education (CME) - ECM

The continuous training of health professionals is an expression of the fundamental value of health protection. The training of health professionals is carried out through programs aimed at improving skills and abilities, also in terms of scientific and technological progress.
The provision of training is based on the principle of transparency. The contents and teaching objectives must be independent of commercial interests.

Who is the continuing education for?

The CME obligation is addressed to all health professionals who carry out the health activity for which they are qualified. The health professional has the obligation to take care of his training and professional competence in the interest of oneself and of the community.

What are CME training credits?

The completion of the training activities is measured by the formative credits. The health professional achieves the right to the recognition of training credits by passing of the final tests of the events provided by the providers. Individual credits accrued by health professionals are recorded in a single national registry managed by Co.Ge.A.P.S.

Compulsory three-year training 2020-2022

With Resolution of 18th December 2019, published on the AGENAS website on 23/12/22019, the Italian National Commission for Continuous Education (CFNC - Commissione Nazionale per la Formazione Continua) approved the period extension for the acquisition of the compulsory  150 training credits for the three-year period 2017-2019 to the 31st December 2020. This extension does not change or affect  the 150 credits  that are to be acquired during the following three-year period 2020-2022.

Below are some highlights we find useful:

1. The training obligation for the three-year period 2020-2022 is equal to 150 training credits, aside from exemptions, exoneration and reductions  approved by the National Commission, and notwithstanding the application for the three-year period 2020-2022 of what has already been regulated for the three-year period 2017-2019.

2. The acquisition of training credits for the three-year period 2017-2019 is allowed until 31 December 2020 for events with an "event end date" within 31 December 2020. For those who will use this extension, the reductions mentioned in the continuous education handbook of health professionals part 1.1 and point 1 and 2 will not apply

The reductions to which point 2 refers are the following:

For those who had acquired 121 to 150 credits in the three-year period 2014-2016, the three-year requirement 2017-2019 was reduced to 120, while for those who had acquired from 80 to 120 it was reduced to 135.
