In an effort to focus on a Culture of Safety and Quality, Ramsay Sime Darby Healthcare (RSDHC) commenced a “Speak Up For Patient Safety” program in January 2019. SUFPS is an innovative and evidence-based programme, based on the Vanderbilt University (USA) program deliv­ered with the assistance of the Cognitive Institute. The program addresses in a positive way any behaviour which undermines a culture of safety through peer-to-peer con­versations and equipping staff with assertiveness training. To achieve a successful outcome there was a major focus on informing, educating and engaging key stakeholder groups.
