Inflation is on the rise this summer, impacting nearly every sector of our economy. According to a recent economic forecast by Kiplinger, rising prices pushed the inflation rate up to 9.1%, the highest reading since 1981. Costs are rising for food, gasoline, new and used vehicles, clothing, housing, and airfare (among other things). Inflation is expected to remain high for the rest of the year.
The healthcare industry is not immune to the impacts of these cost increases. At HMP Global we understand the challenges our customers face as they deal with the rising costs of goods and services in their daily lives. To ensure that healthcare professionals will still receive high quality education and training that is essential to their ongoing professional development, we offer cost efficient opportunities to access our learning networks and events.
To underscore our commitment to ensuring that healthcare professionals will receive important education and information, we implemented a complimentary pricing model for all of our virtual events, giving healthcare professionals around the world access to our online educational conferences for free.
The HMP Global Learning Network is healthcare’s home for news, education, and information, with robust offerings in the following therapeutic areas:
- Allergy & Immunology
- Clinical Pathways
- Emergency & Mobile Medicine
- Endocrinology & Diabetes
- Infectious Diseases
- Obstetrics & Gynecology
- Population Health
- Psychiatry & Behavioral Health
- Rheumatology & Arthritis
- Wound Care
Our learning networks and events are an opportunity to earn the continuing education credits necessary to maintain licenses and certifications. They also help clinicians stay abreast of ground-breaking research, learn best practices in their field, network and collaborate with colleagues, and learn about innovative new technologies and equipment to improve patient outcomes.
In addition to complimentary virtual events, we are proud to offer scholarships and reduced registration rates to many of our in-person global conferences, to ensure our community has access to important developments that improve patient care.
To date, we have educated more than 25,000 clinicians through the virtual events and webinars we offer. This is just one way we demonstrate our commitment to Healthcare Made Practical.
