The MSc in Promoting Health in Long-Term Conditions includes two specialist modules that focus on the related areas of Multi-Professional Approaches and Health Coaching.

It also includes three research-based modules that emphasise the development of skills that allow practitioners to critically appraise sources of evidence and apply it in order to bring about improvement within a health and social care setting.

Programme aims:
The programme aims to provide education that meets the changing needs of health and social care professionals, in particular to demonstrate a critical awareness of a range of complex issues associated with long-term conditions and behaviour change and critically evaluate evidence in this area so as to improve practice.
