Speak Up materials
In March 2002, The Joint Commission launched its Speak Up™ patient safety program. Over time, the program has expanded to more than 40 countries, and features infographics, animated videos, brochures and posters.
The Speak Up™ program urges patients to:
Speak up if you have questions or concerns.
Pay attention to the care you get.
Educate yourself about your illness.
Ask a trusted family member or friend to be your advocate (advisor or supporter).
Know what medicines you take and why you take them.
Use a healthcare organization that has been carefully checked out.
Participate in all decisions about your treatment.
Please feel free to download any of the brochures or information on the Speak Up™ patient safety program!
