STAFF ENGAGEMENT: HOW TO KEEP HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS IN THE GAME

Being a healthcare professional is challenging. We help professionals decompress, remain resilient and increase staff engagement by facilitating the sharing of their stories – those about the challenges and joys of delivering healthcare.

“Dr. Dickey’s approach to storytelling in healthcare is invaluable. The program has been very successful in helping us to improve our communication amongst each other and to our patients and families. The first inpatient unit team we worked with showed improvement in their HCAHPS scores/patient satisfaction, including Nurse Communication, three months in a row.”
