Brief Action Planning

Brief Action Planning (BAP)

BAP is a highly structured, stepped -care, Self-Management support technique.  Composed of a series of 3 questions and 5 Skills. BAP can be used to facilitate goal setting and action planning to build self-efficacy in chronic illness management and disease prevention. The overall goal of BAP is to assist an individual to create an action plan for a Self-Management behavior that they feel confident that they can achieve.  BAP is currently being used in diverse care settings including primary care, home health care and rehabilitation, mental health and public health to assist and empower patients to self-manage chronic illnesses and disabilities.  This technique has been incorporated into teaching curriculum at multiple medical schools, presented at major national healthcare and academic conferences and is being increasingly integrated into health delivery systems across the United States and Canada to support patient Self-Management.
