The European Accreditation of PRM Programmes of Care is a peer review procedure aiming to promote quality of PRM care in participating European countries. The Accreditation review process is based on voluntary work and the UEMS PRM Section decided to offer for a free registration for an introductory period.
If you wish to submit a programme of care to accreditation:
- Please contact either the Chairman of Clinical Affairs Committee, Prof Mark Delargy or the General Secretary Karel Moses to advise what type of programme you wish to submit. Prof Delargy and Dr Moses will advise on how to present your programme.
- You will be given the opportunity to make a preliminary oral presentation during one workshop of the Clinical Affairs Committee. These workshops take place every six months during the General Assembly of the UEMS Section and Board of PRM. Each 6 months these workshops rotate through and are hosted by the member countries. If you cannot attend a workshop we suggest that you ask your National Delegate at UEMS PRM to present your programme on your behalf.
