Spring Meeting 2016 - Accreditation and Expenses

Thank you to everyone for attending the 2016 Annual Spring Meeting of Participants. It was very successful and we heard from many of you that it was the best meeting yet!!!

Following is information to obtain your CME certificate, as well as reimbursement information for funded participants.

CME Accreditation

Claiming credits and receiving your certificate: Participants wanting to claim credits must use our CME Evaluation Program available on the 2016 Spring Meeting website. You will be asked to evaluate the accredited meeting(s) attended, indicate the number of hours attended, and answer some general questions. Upon completion, you will be able to print your certificate. This certificate will be accepted by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, but we cannot guarantee the certificate will be accepted by other associations or groups (e.g. CRAs [SoCRA] or Pharmacists).

The DEADLINE for claiming credits and obtaining a certificate is May 18, 2016.

Reimbursement Information for Funded Participants
The expense claim form is located on the 2016 Spring Meeting website. For questions about your travel allotment and reimbursable expenses, please view the CCTG Spring Meeting policies located on the 2016 Spring Meeting website.

A few things to remember when completing your expense claim form:
  • Meal Receipts: original itemized receipts (credit/debit receipts are not itemized) are mandatory for reimbursement and must accompany your claim. Alcohol is to be removed from the cost of your meal. Do not claim for meals provided at the meeting;
  • Do not put multiple expenses on one line;
  • You do not need to complete the "Account Information" section that requires a series of "program, class, project" numbers; and,
  • Complete the expense claim form online and send in a printed copy with your original receipts.
The DEADLINE for submitting your expenses is June 30, 2016

Questions should be sent to meetings@ctg.queensu.ca.
