    • Evaluation Study of the Impact of Implementing a Draft Policy to Develop Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) to Meet Service Need
  • Summary
    • The aims of this mixed method evaluation are to: 1. measure the activities & impact (direct and indirect) of a critical mass of ANPs to five service areas:(rheumatology, respiratory medicine, older persons care and unscheduled care ED & AMAU, 2. Evaluate the impact of this critical mass on service challenges of access to services, 3.Capture the perspective and experiences of patients and their families; the interdisciplinary teams; the health service organisation and the health system effect of implementation of the critical mass of ANPs, 3. Provide an analysis of the challenges and opportunities arising from this initiative, 4. Assess the economic effectiveness/contribution of the ANP policy and 5.

    • Improving Practice Led Research for the Benefit of Service Users; Research Capacity Building for Nursing - HSE Project 10200
  • Summary
    • The aim of this research project is to build research capacity (RCD) and enhance professional practice, healthcare and patient outcomes through the development of an enabling research infrastructure for nurse led research and innovation in collaboration with Community Health care Organisation 7. The intervention in this project builds upon the success reported by McKee et al. (2017) and a number of research capacity building collaborations with Dublin Midlands hospitals associated with CHO 7. A key activity for the post-doctoral researcher will be to provide support for nurses in the clinical area to do research and thus provide part of the formal infrastructure to foster RCD. The post-doctoral researcher will initially manage the five research projects identified in the tender document. Research projects will be developed in collaboration with CHO7 Directors of Public Health Nursing and Public Health Nurses. To assist in the process an initial consultation was held with PHN's in CHO7. The linked project I am currently involved in is a systematic review exploring The research project team on this study also includes Dr Margaret McCann, Ms Anne-Marie Kelly CHO7, Ms Collette Dempsey CHO7 and Ms Jessica Eustace-Cook TCD Librarian.

    • Sustaining Place - How Informal Carers of Persons with Dementia Address the Problem of 'Living on the Fringes'
  • Summary
    • PhD Research and Thesis. The aim of this study was to develop a theory to explain the processes employed by informal carers of persons with dementia to resolve issues of primary concern to them. The study was conducted using a Classic Grounded Theory (CGT) approach and a social constructionist orientation informed the conceptualisation of the resultant theory. The problem of concern to informal carers in this study was identified as 'Living on the fringes'. This problem refers to a significant and frequently negative alteration to informal carers' relationships with and place within their life-worlds. The theory of 'Sustaining Place' represents the social pattern of activities informal carers engage in to address this problem and has four components: 1) 'Unsettled place', 2) 'Threatened place', 3) 'Sustaining our place' and 4) 'Sustained Place'. the theory is dynamic and can occur in relation to sequences of 'Sustaining Place'. The theory therefore represents the diverse and individual nature of an informal carer's experience of living with dementia.
