Event description

Description

This FREE workshop is open to all health care professionals. Lunch is provided.

Brief Action Planning (BAP) addresses many of the barriers providers have cited to providing self-management support. It can be used routinely by both individual providers and health care teams to facilitate patient-centered goal setting, action planning and to build self-efficacy in chronic disease management and prevention.

BAP uses a 7.5 hour long workshop format to provide health care providers with an opportunity to learn specific, brief and efficient communication strategies and skills that can be utilized in the setting of brief medical office visits.

  • Based on theories, principles and practices of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and the evidence-based literature of behaviour change, drawing specifically on self-efficacy and action planning theory and research.
