IMPORTANT NOTE CONCERNING EDUCATION POINTS
The scanning of the badges is necessary to obtain the ACPE accreditation points and certificate of attendance. Please note that hostesses will be scanning badges at the end of each session only. Entrance to all sessions will not be permitted from 30 minutes before the ending of the session. It is the participants’ responsibility to be sure badges are scanned as changes will not be made after the Congress.
Participants are invited to fill in the Evaluation Forms in order to receive their ACPE accreditation certificate and Certificate of attendance. Please be reminded that you will only be able to download the certificate after the Congress.
The ACPE Certificate and the Certificate of attendance will only be provided to participants who have evaluated the sessions attended during the congress. Please complete the evaluation forms after each session you have attended through the EAHP Congress portal accessible from the EAHP website.
The EAHP team will send an email when the link to download the certificates is active. The personal logon code from your badge will be required to print the certificates.
