Biography

Declan is the Director of Evidence Synthesis Ireland and Director of Cochrane Ireland. He holds the Chair in Midwifery and is Deputy Dean of the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at NUI Galway. He is also Scientific Director of the HRB-Trials Methodology Research Network, and Principal Investigator with the INFANT - Irish Centre for Fetal and Neonatal Translational Research.

Declan trained as a nurse and a midwife, meandered (with the help of opportunity, interest and luck) his way into trial methodology and evidence synthesis and his work now focusses on a blend across midwifery (and broader maternity care), randomised trials and how they are done and synthesising evidence.
    

Declan clinical areas of interest lie in maternity care with a particular focus on interest in the implementation and evaluation of models of maternity care and on methods of fetal monitoring. Declan's methodological areas of expertise are randomised trials, systematic reviews and meta-analyses and much of his career has focussed on building capacity in this area. He has published over 150 papers (h-index 33 Scopus, Jan 2019) including numerous Cochrane systematic reviews. He has led a number of clinical trials recruiting from 100 to over 3000 participants and serves on a number of Trial Steering Committees including those in pregnancy (e.g., EMERGE, HOLDS, PARROT) and Data Monitoring Boards (e.g., CORD, KEEP-WELL).  He is editor with the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group and has authored dozens of systematic reviews. 
      
Declan was invited by the Minister for Health to join the National Maternity Strategy Steering Group and to serve a second term as a member of the National Clinical Effectiveness Committee at the Department of Health. 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 (National Nursing and Midwifery regulatory board for Ireland), a member of the National Perinatal Epidemiology Centre (NPEC) National Advisory Group and a member of the National Clinical Effectiveness Committee. 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. Declan has been awarded over €7 million in research funding as PI or co-PI and more than €8.0 million as co-applicant.
