The Joint Commission’s award winning Speak UP™ program urges patients to take an active role in preventing health care errors by becoming involved and informed participants in their care. The Speak Up program features free videos and brochures that encourage people to speak up and participate in decisions about their treatment.

The Joint Commission has refreshed its award-winning Speak Up™ campaigns in April 2018. The revamped Speak Up™ program is based on national market research conducted in 2017. A focus group of patients and their family caregivers was tapped to provide feedback on the program.

Since 2002, The Joint Commission has helped the public play an active role in their care by providing free, downloadable education materials through the Speak Up™ program. The Department of Corporate Communications is giving the program a makeover with a fresh look and updates to the material, beginning with the original Speak Up™ About Your Care campaign.
