We believe that good practice should be shared. We offer various teaching opportunities, from university courses to online material on this website.

Taught courses at City University London

For instance, at City, the MSc Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care (Long Term Conditions and Long Term Care) offers a practical qualification aimed at nurses and health, social work and social care professionals who are working with people with long term conditions in their homes, care homes or in the acute sector. This course covers much of the theoretical content that underpins the work of My Home Life.

For other courses at City, visit the website.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) modules at City

Additionally, at City there are a number of modules which you can complete on an individual basis as part of Continuing Professional Development. Modules which cover aspects of the My Home Life approach include:

If you are interested in pursuing a PhD on a topic related to quality of care for older people, please contact Professor Julienne Meyer (j.meyer [at] city.ac.uk).

In addition to the formal teaching options detailed on this page, under Resources and Information on this website you will find freely available material developed by My Home Life for use in practice.
