Medical information is doubling roughly every five years. Much of this new information will render old knowledge obsolete. Those unable to "unlearn" will only be prepared to operate in a world that no longer exists.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
Following on the success of his recent work with United Healthcare, IASIS Healthcare and numerous state hospital associations, popular keynote speaker, healthcare futurist, and best-selling author, Jack Uldrich will join Jim Collins (the best-selling author of "Great by Choice") and Commander Mark Kelly (Commander of the Space Shuttle Endeavour's final mission and the husband of former U.S. Congresswoman Gabrille Giffords) in addressing the AHCA/NCAL convention in Tampa, Florida. Mr. Uldrich will keynote the National Center for Assisted Living's portion of the convention and will discuss "Why The Future of Healthcare Will Require Unlearning."
The presentation, based on Uldrich’s two new books: "Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow" and "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future" as well as his popular article, "Top Ten Trends in Healthcare," will begin by discussing how continued advances in information technologies, biotechnology, nanotechnology, robotics, radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, genomics, regenerative medicine and social networking will radically transform healthcare in the decade ahead. (A video of Mr. Uldrich discussing future trends can be viewed here.)
Uldrich will then focus on why these trends will demand unlearning and discuss why participants must embrace the concept of unlearning in order to achieve future success. Uldrich, who has been hailed as “America’s Chief Unlearning Officer,” will conclude his remarks by reviewing specific habits, customs, beliefs and ideas that healthcare and assisted living professionals can—and must—unlearn. Throughout his talk, he will use vivid analogies and memorable stories, drawn from a wide spectrum of industries, to ensure his message of unlearning “sticks” with his audiences. (A sample video of Mr. Uldrich discussing unlearning can be viewed here.)
In the past year, Uldrich has addressed dozens of healthcare associations and hospitals, including the Alcetel-Lucent/Verizon Forum on Wireless Healthcare, United Healthcare, Allina Hospitals, The Healthcare Trustees of New York, IASIS Healthcare, The Iowa Healthcare Collaborative, Care Providers of Minnesota, St. Jude Medical, Fairview Hospitals, University Hospitals & Health System of Ohio, and healthcare associations in Colorado, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Tennessee, Utah and Wisconsin. He has also addressed a number of major, non-health-care-related corporations on the topic of unlearning including PepsiCo, Cisco, IBM, WiPro, Southern Company and General Electric.
