About

Background

Professor Julienne Meyer leads research in Care for Older People at City University London and is Executive Director of My Home Life Programme (MHL), a UK-wide initiative to promote quality of life for those living, dying, visiting and working in care homes for older people.

Julienne initially trained as a nurse, and started her nursing career at Charing Cross Hospital, London. She became a ward sister, specialising in general medicine/endocrine, before working as a clinical consultant of the nursing process. Her transition into teaching came when she moved into a nurse tutor role at the West Thames School of Nursing. She later moved to King's College, London, as a research fellow, and then a lecturer of nursing, before taking up a consultancy role in research and development for Kings Healthcare NHS Trust. She joined City University London as a Reader, before her promotion to her current position of Professor of Nursing.

Professor Meyer has an international reputation for expertise in appreciative action research, which uses participative and affirming methods to research attempts to improve practice.  The value of the work is not only the lessons learnt (scientific knowledge), but also, the engagement of users and providers as co-researchers in the educational process of reflecting on and learning from practice, within the context whole systems thinking (social change).  Over the last 3 years, as Director of My Home Life (MHL), her work has focused primarily on quality improvement in care homes.

Research overview

Launching and disseminating findings from Joseph Rowntree Foundation Report Promoting Voice, Choice and Control for Older People Living in Care Homes
Gathering and analysing data from My Home Life London (The City Bridge Project)

Professor Meyer has an international reputation for expertise in appreciative action research, which uses participative and affirming methods to research attempts to improve practice.  The value of the work is not only the lessons learnt (scientific knowledge), but also, the engagement of users and providers as co-researchers in the educational process of reflecting on and learning from practice, within the context whole systems thinking (social change).  Over the last 3 years, as Director of My Home Life (MHL), her work has focused primarily on quality improvement in care homes.

Quality improvement in care homes is complex due to the need to transcend a number of traditional boundaries (health and social care; general and mental health; public and private; acute, secondary and tertiary settings).  There are over 18,000 care homes (75% privately owned) across the UK caring for approximately 400,000 older people (x3 more beds than NHS).  Due to national policies that focus on ageing in place, older people are going into care homes later and sicker.   They represent some of the most vulnerable citizens in our society.  They often have complicated health and social care needs, resulting from multiple long-term conditions, with significant levels of disability and frailty (for instance, 2/3rds of residents have dementia).  However, residents are being cared for by a predominantly social care workforce that is poorly paid, with low level or no educational qualifications. Care homes are often described as 'islands of the old', disconnected from their local communities and the wider health and social care system.  They are negatively and inappropriately portrayed by the media and not valued for the vital role they play in caring for older people who are too frail to live at home and are at end of life.  Given these changing demographics, it is widely acknowledged that care homes need support to improve standards of care; this is the focus of the My Home Life initiative (www.myhomelife.org.uk).  To do this, the MHL team engage in three main areas of work: research and development, enterprise activities and social action.
