Brief Action Planning Workshop for Healthcare Providers / Community Professionals and Students: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday - August 16th, 18th and 19th, 2022 for Session 1, 2 and 3 from 9:45 am - 12:00 pm.
Brief Action Planning is a highly structured, patient-centered and evidence informed model based on the principles and practice of Motivational Interviewing (MI). It is a structured way of having a conversation with someone who is interested in turning their hopes for healthy behaviours into concrete plans. The core skills can be used by anyone interested in supporting others to make change.
One hour practice and feedback calls are offered to all participants one to three weeks after the initial workshop to provide participants an opportunity to practice demonstrating the model. Participants are required to complete at least 2 practice and feedback calls in order to receive a certificate.
By the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
Describe the Spirit of MI in health behavior change
Utilize three core questions during patient visits
Demonstrate and receive feedback on 5 core skills for facilitating patient centered action planning
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 three sessions workshop format via Zoom Meeting, 90 minutes long per session 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.
Designed to acquaint the participant with the literature, theory and techniques for promoting change in health behaviour and supporting self-management
