South Riverdale CHC is offering Brief Action Planning (BAP), a Centre for Collaboration, Motivation, and Innovation (CCMI) designed program. BAP is an evidence-based, efficient, and effective tool that helps health care providers support management as well as behavior change that enables patient self-efficacy. BAP focuses on client-centered goal-setting and gives health care providers ways to involve patients in decision making that emphasizes the value of problem-solving, goal setting, creating goal-directed behaviour, and following up on these goals with patients in future visits.


The tools and techniques taught in the workshop:
  • helps foster a collaborative relationship between clients and their health care provider
  • are applicable to any chronic health condition
  • Can be used in various clinical settings
  • are compatible with other self-management techniques
  • Reinforces language taught in the peer led Stanford program

BAP makes efficient use of health care providers’ time and can be used as part of any routine client interaction with the opportunity to use it over multiple visits.

Who uses BAP?
