Research Interests


I currently chair the Research Committee at the Department of Nursing and lead the Health Implementation Science and Technology Research Cluster University of Limerick. My experience in research includes national and international disciplinary and interdisciplinary projects and extends over a range of research areas such as: transitions in care for older adults; evaluation of health services and programmes; development of competencies for nursing, health, and social care; dementia; palliative care and advance care planning. I have completed a number of funded projects at national and international level as principle investigator, lead co-investigator and co-applicant. I have secured competitive funding from a variety of sources e.g Health Research Board, Health Services Executive, and the European Union. I have and continue to collaborate on interdisciplinary research projects at University level with colleagues at University College Cork (Centre for Gerontology; School of Medicine, Department of General Practice; Schools of Pharmacy, Social Science, Education, Economics and Epidemiology and Public Health and Institute of Social Science); at national level (University College Dublin School of Nursing and Health Sciences; NUIG and Trinity College School of Nursing and Midwifery) and Internationally (Savonia University of Applied Sciences, Finland, University of Oklahoma, Case Western University Ohio, Queen Margaret University Edinburgh, Marquette University, Milwaukie, Wisconsin USA; Penn Nursing, Philadelphia). I have published in peer-reviewed high impact international journals both nursing and interdisciplinary.
