MALVERN, PA — HMP, a leading healthcare event and education company, announced an expanded partnership with the International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC), the leader in the credentialing of prevention, substance use treatment, and recovery professionals.
As part of the arrangement, the National Conference on Addiction Disorders (NCAD) East and West, part of HMP’s Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Learning Network, are official conferences of IC&RC. The two organizations will work jointly on educational and marketing initiatives around the two meetings.
Organized in 1981, IC&RC is the largest credentialing organization in the world and represents more than 50,000 professionals in the U.S. and globally. IC&RC promotes public protection by offering internationally recognized credentials and examinations to professionals.
For more than ten years, the NCAD brand has focused on delivering exceptional face-to-face education to address addiction disorders. In 2019, the meeting expanded into East and West offerings. Through comprehensive clinical agendas, the meetings allow attendees to hear new research and share cross-discipline insight on forward-thinking topics such as medication-assisted treatment, benzodiazepine use, and advances in treatment technologies. Nearly 1,000 professionals participated in NCAD East in Baltimore, Maryland, in August, and 400 are expected to participate in the inaugural NCAD West, taking place October 24–26 in Denver, Colorado.
“We are honored to be strengthening our collaboration with IC&RC,” said Doug Edwards, Director, HMP Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Learning Network. “In the midst of an unprecedented addiction crisis, this partnership provides thousands of IC&RC-credentialed professionals access to critical, evidence-based education presented by the field’s leading experts in order to continue to advance the profession and quality care for those challenged by addiction.”
“The IC&RC looks forward to this enhanced strategic partnership with HMP,” said Crystal Smalldon, RSSW, CCAC, CIAC, IC&RC President and Executive Director. “Together, IC&RC and HMP are committed to advancing the profession. HMP produces the leading national conferences in this field, and this agreement provides a unique opportunity to provide our community of professionals the highest quality education to continually improve and refine patient care and recovery services. This represents real impact.”
