Speak Up Initiatives


Our award-winning patient safety program

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, which can be downloaded for free.

There are NO copyright or reprinting permissions required for the Speak Up materials or copy. All Speak Up infographics, brochures and videos are available in English and Spanish, and can be translated into other languages. For details about reprints, translations and purchasing Speak Up materials, see Facts about Speak Up™.

In an effort to continue to extend our reach and provide a consistent, user-friendly experience, we now are bundling all Speak Up materials into one "package" that may include an infographic, video, podcast, and other materials related to the topic.

New for 2015:

  • Ability to download the whole campaign in one click from the Speak Up web page.

  • Videos have a modern look and feel, with new colors and less “cartoony” characters.

  • New web pages reflect new campaigns.

  • Availability of Speak Up survey year-round.
