Brief Action Planning Workshop - Level 2

(Completion of the Choices and Changes workshop is strongly recommended prior to registering for Brief Action Planning)

Brief Action Planning is a highly structured, patient-centered & evidence informed self-management support technique based on the principles and practice of Motivational Interviewing. It is a structured way of having a conversation with someone who is interested in turning their hopes for healthy behaviours into concrete plans and the core skills can be used by anyone interested in supporting others to make change.


One hour practice calls are offered to all participants one to three weeks after the initial workshop to provide participants an opportunity to practice demonstrating the model. Brief Action Planning is offered as a full day workshop to learn 5 core skills for facilitating patient centered action planning.


Health care professionals will:

  • Learn an efficient model to facilitate patient goal setting and action planning that can be completed within 5-10 minutes
  • Successfully complete at least 1 practice call by a skilled facilitator after the workshop in order to receive a certificate
