This change package was adapted from the smoking cessation intervention literature. It uses the 5 A’s – Assess, Advise, Agree, Assist, Arrange – to assist clinicians and others in guiding patients and families that are coping with chronic conditions to develop goals and action plans for behaviour change.  The model contains suggestions for change in one-on-one encounters, at the clinical practice team level, and at the level of community policy.
