Role of ACOE
The Accreditation Council of Oncology in Europe (ACOE) was established in 1999. Its primary function is to review and assess European CME events in oncology, more specifically the quality and the educational value of the scientific programme of the activity. In partnership with the UEMS, ACOE reviews and evaluates CME activities in the field of oncology on the basis of a set of criteria fully in line with those of the UEMS / EACCME.
The ACOE accreditation label provides delegates with a guarantee of a high quality and unbiased educational activity.
