Speaking Up for Safety

At Metro South Addiction and Mental Health Services all of us have a responsibility to speak up when we are concerned about a patient safety issue – but sometimes people may find this difficult. That's why we provide training to our staff to help them raise patient safety concerns.

Speaking Up for Safety™ is a one hour training workshop aimed at increasing skills for staff members to respectfully raise patient safety concerns with colleagues using graded assertiveness communication skills.

This course will give you the words and skills to support you to speak up for safety.

Speaking Up for Safety™ is a once off mandatory training workshop for all MSAMHS staff providing direct care to consumers.The courses are delivered by the MSAMHS Safety Champions (below).
