Biography

I joined the School in 2005. I have extensive nursing experience in Ireland, UK and Australia. I lecture on health promotion at undergraduate and postgraduate level. My research interests include health promotion, health of marginalised groups including migrants, cardiovascular health, community nursing and critical care outreach. My doctoral research investigated the health and use of health of services by Polish migrants living in Ireland. I am currently the Director of Trinity Centre for Practice Health Care Innovation.

Projects

  • Title
    • Person-centredness in Healthcare Curricula
  • Summary
    • This project builds on an already established and strong global partnership that exists to advance person-centred healthcare. The aim of the project is to develop an international curriculum framework for educating future person-centred healthcare practitioners. Person-centred healthcare is an approach to healthcare delivery that places the beliefs and values of patients and families at the centre of decision-making. In doing this, healthcare practitioners need to be able to treat patients and families as actively engaged partners in care. This is achieved through person-centred assessment, the design of a care plan arising from that assessment and implementing the care plan in partnership with patients and families. All of this is supported by organisational cultures that are committed to person-centred healthcare at all levels of the organisation/system. There is a global evidence-base showing the benefits of a person-centred approach to healthcare delivery at individual, unit and systems levels. However, to our knowledge few curricula exist that are person-centred and that focus on educating future person-centred healthcare practitioners and leaders. Whilst many curricula have some components of person-centredness built into particular courses, there are very few curriculum frameworks in place to educate healthcare practitioners. So this project aims to address this agenda by developing an international curriculum framework for educating future person-centred healthcare practitioners. We will do this by achieving the following objectives: 1. Co-creating a set of themes to underpin healthcare curricula that can be used to develop person- centred practitioners who work with people in a variety of contexts. 2. Identifying learning outcomes and professional qualities that meet the needs of stakeholders in the partner countries. 3. Generating a new curriculum framework for the development of the future person-centred graduate practitioner. 4. Designing a suite of stakeholder-focused innovative assessment strategies for use in undergraduate and postgraduate curricula.

    • Registered General Nurses'self-assessed needs in relation to supporting individuals with mental health problems in the acute care setting
  • Summary
    • Background: The term holistic care in nursing encompasses complete and comprehensive care requirements of the individual. This includes physical and mental health requirements. To achieve the delivery of mental health care in the acute care setting, nurses need to be adequately skilled to carry out mental health assessments and subsequently deliver appropriate interventions or identify the need for specialist referrals, as appropriate. A study conducted among oncology nurses in Ireland (Nash 2017) demonstrated that a range of mental health problems are encountered in practice. While nurses were equipped to handle some aspects of mental health care requirements, they generally felt that they were in need of additional information particularly in relation to complex conditions that extended beyond anxiety and depression. This question has not been raised among general nurses in the acute setting and therefore a decision was made to assess Registered General Nurses' needs in relation to supporting individuals with mental health problems in the acute care setting. In the United Kingdom, the National Service Framework for Mental Health (Department of Health 2000) recommended standards for planning and delivering mental health services in the UK. This is seen as an important issue for consideration in the Irish population also. Research question: What are the needs of Registered General Nurses in relation to supporting individuals with mental health problems in the acute setting? Study aim: To assess Registered General Nurses' needs in relation to supporting individuals with mental health problems in the acute care setting. Objectives: . To determine whether Registered General Nurses' feel adequately equipped to support individuals with mental health problems in the acute care setting. . If deficits are identified, this study seeks to ascertain the nurses' specific education and training needs that would help in supporting individuals with mental health problems in the acute care setting. . Based on the information collected, a needs analysis will be compiled and from this, a business and education plan will be proposed within the School of Nursing and Midwifery.
