This keynote was customized for Change Healthcare. Allison customizes for each audience.

“It is important that all people in healthcare – including those without direct patient contact – feel valued and recognized for their role in compassionate care. My focus is to support and nourish healthcare professionals, to revive their passion for their mission in healthcare, to alleviate stress, moral injury, and burnout, and to be an advocate for patients and providers. I speak on the patient experience, supporting caregiver resilience while highlighting the profound impact of kindness in patient care, and kindness for each other. My life has been immersed in medicine. I’m a burn survivor, sustained a traumatic brain injury, and I was raised by an oncology surgeon and nurse, so I deeply understand both perspectives of patient and provider. I speak to a broad range of groups including physicians, nurses, leadership teams, technologists, IT professionals, and more.”

“In a word, astounding!”

“One of the most memorable and impactful keynotes in CIO Forum history.”

Keith Fraidenburg
Vice President Education & Communications



This document has program descriptions for Allison’s Healthcare Keynotes and CE programs as well as deliverables for the audience, biography, benefits etc.

“I have found myself wondering, since your presentation, when presented with significant obstacles, “What would Allison do?”, and instead of giving up and giving in, I formulate a plan and initiate the plan. You have made a profound impact on my sense of well-being and ability to remain a “glass half full” kind of person.”

“I am writing to let you know the inspiration I felt after your presentation at my Diagnostics Days in Pittsburgh, sponsored by Siemens Healthcare, on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. Having trained and worked at a hospital with a burn unit as a medical technologist in the laboratory, I could never have imagined that a story of such strength, passion, and resilience could come from such a horrific incident such as the one you experienced. As health care professionals, there are many times that our work can feel repetitive and at times, it is difficult for us to realize the difference we can make in the life of a patient by a simple gesture of kindness. You truly helped the audience understand the difference such a small act of kindness can bring to the peace of mind of our patients. I have received numerous comments from the over 100 customers in the audience with similar responses as well. Thanks so much for making our customer event an overwhelming success.”

“Compassion isn’t about feeling sorry for someone. Compassion is honoring someone — honoring what they are going through.”
