Summary of the Impact:

With the development of medical devices such as stents and valves to treat patient trauma, the need for invasive surgical procedures has been greatly reduced. This has led to significant reductions in hospitalisation time and improved patient outcomes. Improvements in the X-ray visibility of these devices is critical to allow surgeons ensure exact placement while keeping the patient’s X-ray exposure to a minimum.

This research will significantly improve treatment quality by reducing time required for treatment, repeat procedures and trauma

Summary of the Impact:

How do we ensure our government and its policies are informed by the needs of our citizens? How do we encourage our citizens to become active participants in forming the policies which affect their future? These are questions which researchers at the University of Limerick are working to answer. Dr Maura Adshead together with Dr Chris McInerney of the Department of Politics and Public Administration, University of Limerick have led the development of innovative practice in the area of policy research and civic engagement.
