I’ve trained many clinicians and healthcare professionals to deliver the Speaking Up for Safety presentation. As you watch this video, consider how you will present this training to your colleagues – think about how you can move around the room, use body language and
eye-contact and vary your pace of delivery. I encourage you to find time in your busy schedule to practice delivering the entire presentation. This will ensure you feel confident and prepared for accreditation.
