Three modules that teach the healthcare provider to:

  1. Assess where patients are with their self care and elicit a care issue relevant to their lives
  2. Assist patients to set a behavioural goal that addresses their self care issue and design a simple action plan that helps the patient take his/her first steps toward achieving that goal
  3. Assist patients with enacting their action plans and to undertake follow-up with patients to ensure their continued success

The modules are a mix of text and video-based instruction to accommodate different learning styles.
