Brief Action Planning (BAP) is a free, highly structured, client-centered 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.

Each skill of the BAP tool is based on literature and the evolving understanding of what works and does not work to help people change. BAP is supported by evidence from behavioural science and self-management support that is grounded in the principles and practice of motivational interviewing.
BAP is being used in diverse care settings including primary care, home health care, rehabilitation, mental health and public health to assist and empower clients to self-manage ongoing health conditions including diabetes, depression, spinal cord injury, arthritis, hypertension, as well as disease prevention. BAP has been incorporated into teaching curriculums at medical schools, presented at health care/academic conferences and integrated into health delivery to support client self-management.
