Profile

Dr. Cindy Jones is a Research Fellow with the Griffith Health Institute, Centre for Health Practice Innovation (HPI) and a Griffith representative for the Queensland Dementia Training and Study Centre (QLD DTSC).

The focus of her work includes an exploration of relationships in long-term care; expression of sexualities by older people; psychosocial interventions using social robots and telepresence robots for people with dementia; and quality of and evidence-based dementia care. This work is being developed around the key areas of knowledge transfer and workforce training and development.

In 2013, Dr. Jones has developed the Sexualities & Dementia: An Online Education Resource for Health Professional, funded by the Department of Health and Ageing via the QLD DTSC. Furthermore, she was awarded an Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Grant to implement this E-Learning resource to improve knowledge and attitudes of aged care staff.
