Brief Action Planning Workshop--Free Professional Development for Healthcare Providers, Central West Self-Management Program

Central West Ontario
February and March 2018

Brief Action Planning (BAP) is a tool composed of a series of 3 questions and 5 skills used to facilitate patient goal setting and action planning within the limited time available for appointments and interventions. BAP is designed to help patients experiencing ambivalence and/or low confidence to set achievable action plans.

Each skill of the BAP tool is based on literature and the evolving understanding of what works and does not work to help people change.
 
Objectives, at the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Implement specific and efficient communication strategies that can be utilized to support client-centered care.
  • Demonstrate how BAP can help patients experiencing ambivalence and/or low confidence to set achievable action plans and problem solve barriers to change.
  • Identify clinician’s key role as partners and facilitators in patient self-management.
