“I worked with PROPEL for several years and it’s amazing to me what these principles can do to engage a multidisciplinary healthcare team. The units who used PROPEL saw results such as: increased employee engagement scores, decreased falls, and decreased turnover. PROPEL changed the way that our teams viewed and solved problems. Staff started supporting each other and work became more like family. I have already brought PROPEL to this organization because I know about the positive changes it creates.”
