Biographical details

Professor Yun-Hee Jeon is a registered nurse, academic and leading Australian researcher in psychogeriatrics and gerontology. Her research focuses on developing innovative and creative approaches to improving the health and wellbeing of older people with dementia, depression or other chronic illnesses. She studies ways to improve care quality and service delivery for these vulnerable population groups, develop workforce capacity in aged care, and establish evidence- and practice-based benchmarks and tools for assessment and outcome measurement in dementia. She also explores in-depth, the experiences of people with chronic illness and their carers to help inform and provide context to research and policy. She is recognised for her significant contributions to building the evidence for person-centred care, a philosophy that she says underpins all of her research. “We focus on understanding and addressing the need of an individual and their capabilities rather than impairment. Our research investigates care interventions to help improve the person’s autonomy regardless of their clinical condition”, notes Professor Jeon. Additionally to address the dearth of skilled aged care workforce she has developed and tested a Clinical Leadership in Aged Care Program. Professor Jeon also has fostered key international collaborations, which includes securing funding for an international exchange program entitled “Building an international, interdisciplinary research program for quality indicators in dementia care”, in partnership with Scientific Institute for Quality of Healthcare Radboud University, the Netherlands. She is a co-convener of the IPA Consortium for Psychosocial Research to advance mental health of older people in the Asia-Pacific region (PROMOTE), and of the AAG Australia-Asia Ageing Research and Education Special Interest Group. She is an honorary member of INTERDEM (a pan-European network of researchers on early detection and psycho-social interventions in dementia) and part of the Global Action on Personhood (GAP) in Dementia Core Group Membership.

Research interests

Professor Jeon’s predominant research interests include improving the quality of life of persons with dementia through person-centred care, building capacity of the aged care workforce, bettering outcome and assessment measures in dementia, understanding the experiences of people with chronic illness, and developing new models of care which use person-centred and reablement approaches. Overall, her research aims to promote and support the prevention and management of chronic illness in the context of primary health care.

Professor Jeon played a key role in the CADRE study, the first randomised controlled trial examining the efficacy of person-centred care models in dementia. The study findings published in Lancet Neurology (2009) demonstrated equivalence between DCM (Dementia Care Mapping) and person-centred care, in reducing agitation and aggression of persons with dementia, but a significantly increased implementation cost for DCM, and sparked national and international debate among experts in dementia care. Many service providers are now adopting person-centred approaches to care.

Currently, she leads a “Choice project”relating to care of persons with dementia who have chosen to stay at home until the final stages of the illness. In collaboration with Professor Vernooij-Dassen (Radboud University, the Netherlands), Professor Jeon is expanding her research in this area by investigating a model of shared decision-making in relation to end-of-life care for people with dementia. She also leads an international study (China, Korea and Australia) to validate quality indicators in psychosocial dementia care.

Professor Jeon is a principal investigator of an international collaborative project, “the CAPABLE-C study”, assessing a multidisciplinary service model that promotes ageing well in the community via reablement and person-centred care for older persons with cognitive impairment. The work is based on the success of the original CAPABLE model of care for frail older people with functional difficulties (Johns Hopkins University).

Teaching and supervision

Professor Jeon has over 15 years experience in tertiary teaching in Korea and Australia in the areas of nursing research, research methods (qualitative research, systematic reviews), healthy ageing, dementia care and clinical leadership, and supervises postgraduate students whose research focuses on dementia care, aged care and chronic disease.

Professor Jeon also has developed a number of educational resources, e.g.:

  • 2012, Primary Health Care Education Package Development and Evaluation. Jeon, Y-H, et al. (2012). Primary Health Care: Principles for Practice Workbook and DVD. Self-directed learning resource for nurses in rural communities, the University of Sydney.
