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.
