Associate Professor, School of Nursing & Midwifery

Biography

I am an Associate Professor in Nursing at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin. My research lies within three distinct but overlapping themes: person centered care, spirituality and enhancing the professional education of nurses. I have presented widely on these topics: more than 180 international papers, with research replicated widely across the globe. Within these domains I have also published numerous papers, with 122 peer-reviewed papers listed in Scopus. These publications represent collaborations with colleagues, from Canada, Portugal, Greece and the UK among others. This has meant a meaningful contribution to international debates within nurse education (e.g. management of absenteeism and nurse portfolio/reflective practice) and person-centred care (e.g. information and support requirements of cardiac patients and spiritual care provision. I have written or co-authored 10 textbooks. There are 867-recorded citations of my published papers [Scopus]. My H-index (Scopus) is 16.

  • Title
    • An Exploration of Current Spiritual Care Resources in Health Care in the Republic of Ireland (ROI) and Review of International Chaplaincy Standards.
  • Summary
    • This study aimed to explore current approaches to and facilities for spiritual care provision in the Republic of Ireland (ROI). It also aimed to explore models and frameworks for healthcare chaplaincy and best practice in the area that could guide development of integrated, responsive future resources in the ROI. The findings identify that providing spiritual care to patients is a key component of hospital policy. Spiritual support is identified as the responsibility of the whole healthcare team with specific responsibility being attributed to the healthcare chaplain. Chaplaincy services are enshrined within the dominant faith, however the service is also perceived as a multifaith service. Most sites provided a sacred space or quiet place for clients, visitors and staff to contemplate. The description of the sacred space provided varied between the self-report and policy and website information received. The religious provision identified was consistent with contemporary distributions of religious affiliation in the ROI according to the latest Irish Census.

  • Title
    • An exploration of the effect of an arts-focused DVD on perceived spiritual wellbeing among hospitalised older adults-a pilot study
  • Summary
    • This project is under development. The aim of this project is to investigate the potential of a DVD based programme focused around the arts and nature, to increase the perceived spiritual and social wellbeing of older people in long-term institutional care. The project will research, design and produce four DVDs each approximately 30 minutes long, with content including readings from classic books and plays, paintings, poetry, images from nature and music and each DVD will focus around a different spiritual theme (nature, spirit, shared heritage and love). Input from older people in long-term care together with their relatives and carers will be a very important part of the project and will inform the material selected for inclusion on the DVD as well as influencing the presentation style. This project is based on a very successful initiative by Sonas Apc (2014). A series of CDs was produced in 2013 containing hymns, readings and prayers and allows nursing homes and other long stay institutions to provide this facility in an easy to use format for their residents.

    • Getting to Grips with Psychology - a text for Nursing Students written by Jan De Vriesand Fiona Timmins
  • Summary
    • This is a textbook designed for undergraduate mursing students. It comprises part of the Transforming Nursing Practice series published in Exeter, UK by Learning Matters Ltd. Our text aims to provide a range of psychology topics, traditional as well as contemporary, applied to nursing and health care that will provide a foundation for newly emerging and practicing nurses. It will address the psychological requirements for nurse registration and present theory and research, its application to the field, as well as psychological tools and skills that are integral to care provision. While the chapters will be constructed to allow them to be read separately, they will also build on one another. Key themes will be integrated in ways that allow the student to relate, reflect and exercise in order to build up a meaningful well structured and practical knowledge base around the psychology of nursing and health care.
