He is an Editor with the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group and an Honorary Senior Lecturer at Cochrane UK. Declan has a particular interest in the implementation and evaluation of models of maternity care and on methods of fetal monitoring including cardiotocography and intermittent auscultation. His methodological areas of expertise are randomised trials, systematic reviews and meta-analyses. He has published over 90 papers including numerous Cochrane systematic reviews predominantly in the field of fetal assessment. He has led a number of clinical trials recruiting from 100 to over 3000 participants and serves on a number of Trial Steering Committees and Data Monitoring Boards. Declan was a Ministerial appointed member of the National Maternity Strategy Steering Group and of the National Clinical Effectiveness Committee (NCEC). He is inaugural Chair of the NCEC Clinical Guideline Methodology Subgroup. He is a member of the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) Expert Network of Research Advisors; a former member of the Midwifery Committee of An Bord Altranais (now Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland) and a member of the National Perinatal Epidemiology Centre (NPEC) National Advisory Group.

Between 2014 and 2016, Declan was seconded part time to the maternity services of the Saolta University Health Care Group where he established and Chaired the development of a clinical care pathway group, which developed a suite of clinical care pathways for discrete groups of women accessing maternity services. He currently chairs the Saolta Midwifery ClinicalPractice Forum.  

Declan has been awarded over €3 million in research funding as PI or co-PI and a further €7 million as co-applicant.  He holds or has held awards from the Health Research Board (Ireland), Department of Health and Children (Ireland), National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery (Ireland), Royal College of Midwives (UK), the Health Services Executive (Ireland) and the EU.
