Animated short reminds patients to “Speak Up”

Matt Phillion, for the AHAP blog, April 8, 2011

The Joint Commission’s Speak Up ™ campaign has launched the second in a series of animated shorts aimed at helping patients and their families advocate for safe practices during their care. The latest short targets infection control, specifically hand hygiene.

These shorts are intended to be educational and entertaining, as well as accessible to a wide audience and age range. They can be viewed on The Joint Commission’s YouTube channel.

It is also possible to obtain a downloadable version of the video. For more information, visit The Joint Commission’s web site here.
