Biography

Saoirse Nic Gabhainn is a Senior Lecturer in Health Promotion and Project Leader in the Health Promotion Research Centre and the World Health Organisation Collaborative Centre for Health Promotion Research. She has degrees in Psychology and Health Promotion from the National University of Ireland, Galway and the University of Nottingham, England and is both a Chartered Psychologist and a Chartered Scientist.

She is responsible for research programmes in schools health promotion and among young people, and has published widely in the field of child and adolescent health, with a focus on risk (primarily drugs and sexual health) and protective (primarily social support and social network) behaviours, adolescent health inequalities, and child participation in the research process. She has conducted a number of evaluations of school health promotion in Ireland and belongs to the wider Schools for Health in Europe network (see:www.schoolsforhealth.eu).

Since 1994 she has been Principal Investigator for Ireland with the international Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) network, serving on the Scientific Development Group, the International Co-ordinating Committee and chairing topic-based focus groups such as that on Risk Behaviour and Sexual Health. The Irish HBSC research team in NUI Galway has specific expertise in a wide range of health related behaviours, youth engagement, disadvantaged and vulnerable youth and the application of Geographic Information Systems to child and adolescent health. For further details on the HBSC project and the team members, and to download papers, reports factsheets and short reports from HBSC see www.nuigalway.ie/hbsc.

Saoirse has taught across all of the programmes offered by the Discipline of Health Promotion, with a focus on research methods and statistics well as schools health promotion and mental health and social wellbeing. She supervises research students at PhD level on a range of topics, which currently include: Health Promoting Schools (Yetunde John-Akinola), the implementation of Relationships and Sexuality Education (Christina Murphy), the role of research in adolescent health-related policy development (Helen Grealish), the experience of persisting with breastfeeding (Teresa Meaney) and sex workers experience of the health services (Leigh-Ann Sweeney). She sits on the Graduate Research Committees of a range of other PhD students and is currently Director of Post-graduate Research.Programmes for the School of Health Sciences.

Research Interests

  • Health and Health Behaviour in Childhood and Adolescence
  • Women’s Health
  • School Health Promotion
  • Parenting Practices and Parenting Education
  • Translating Health Promotion Research into Policy and Practice
  • Methodologies for Health Promotion Research


Research Interests

Primary research interests include health behaviour and contexts of health for children and young people, methodolgical developments in health promotion research, youth settings for health promotion (including schools, families and local neighbourhoods), and Participative Research Processes (PRP). My early research career was diverse in terms of the methods employed and issues explored. Following my permanent appointment to the University I have worked to build up a research team that is collaborative, multidisciplinary, health promoting, productive and driven by a set of mutually agreed principles.

My current team includes seven researchers and five PhD students. We work in close proximity and share tasks, creating a busy and vibrant atmosphere where creativity and precision are equally valued. Creativity is essential in conceptualising the research problem, ways of collaborating and in developing methodologies, but precision is required in data collection, analysis and documenting research practice. We focus on youth health promotion, and I have special interests and internationally recognised expertise in risk behaviours and sexual behaviour, disability and vulnerable children (including migrants and travellers), diet and nutrition, schools health promotion, child participation in the research process and equity and policy translation.
