Biography

As a Registered General Nurse, I worked in University Hospital Galway, Ireland and the Addenbrookes NHS Trust in Cambridge, UK. I am also qualified as a Registered Children's Nurse and have worked in Our Lady's Children's Hospital in Crumlin. I am currently a lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery.

Research Interests

One of my original research interests is in teaching and learning innovations. My PhD research explored the role of the Clinical Skills Laboratory in preparing student nurses for the real world of practice. In addition, I have been involved with some of the research projects within the School of Nursing and Midwifery, namely an evaluation of the blended learning programmes in postgraduate nursing education, securing a Villanova Scholarship (500 euro), and the use of peer assessment strategies in an undergraduate nursing programme, which secured Millennium Funding (2000 euro). I was also principal investigator (PI) for a study exploring the use of videoconferencing in postgraduate education.  
 
My primary methodological focus is qualitative research and I have specific experience in case study research. I have experience in qualitative intervewing, conducting focus group interviews and non participant observations. I also have a keen interest in qualitative research ethics.

My current research methodological interest is in Qualitative Evidence Synthesis. I was PI undertaking a qualitative synthesis on staff perceptions and experiences of caring for people with dementia in the acute setting. I secured internal funding from the HRB-TMRN to set up an evidnce synthesis group focusing on trial methodlogy. I am currently PI on a qualitaivate synthesis registered with the Cochrane Metholodogy Review group: Barriers and Facilitators to Recruitment to Randomised Controlled Trials (RCT) in Healthcare: A qualitative evidence synthesis.

My Colleague, Dr Andrew Hunter, and I have recently established QUESTS: QUalitative rESearch in TrialS centre. Teh aim of QUESTS is to maximise the value of qualitative research in randomised trials. This is achieved through a focus on three activities relating to inclusion of high quality qualitative research in randomised trials (i) SUPPORT for undertaking qualitative research with randomised trials (ii) TRAINING and education on the use of qualitative research and trials and (iii) Primary methodology RESEARCH on the use of qualitative research in trials. The QUESTS webste is currently under development with an anticpated launch in early April.

 I am currently co-supervising two Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP) students in their third year and supervising two DNP students in first and second year I also supervise Research Masters students.
