What is Brief Action Planning?

Brief Action Planning (BAP) is an evidence-based and efficient approach that health care professionals can use to support patients’ self-efficacy and guide brief behavior change goals. BAP focuses on client-centered goal-setting and gives health care professionals ways to involve patients in decision-making that emphasizes the core components of motivational interviewing skills. BAP makes efficient use of health care professionals’ time and can be used as part of any routine client interaction with the opportunity to use it over multiple visits.

The workshop learning objectives are:

  • Explain how to use the principles of motivational interviewing (MI) and Brief Action Planning (BAP) to encourage patients to self-manage chronic conditions and promote treatment adherence.
  • Practice the BAP communication skills and strategies with another person.
  • Develop strategies for applying BAP in your own practice setting.
