Biography

Since qualifying as a registered intellectual disability nurse in 1997 I have worked in both practice and education in Ireland.  I commenced my continuing education in 2000 completing a BSc at the University of Limerick in 2002. Following which I commenced my MSc with the Royal College of Nursing Institute (UK) and completed my Masters' thesis in 2005. In late 2006 I commenced my PhD with the University of Ulster and completed my PhD in 2012. I teach both undergraduate and postgraduate nurses/midwifes within the Department of Nursing and Midwifery. Within my teaching role I represented the Education and Health Sciences Faculty in the 2014-2015 University Teaching Award and was the Faculty Teaching Award Winners (2015-2016). My teaching areas focus on intellectual disability, research and practice development in nursing and midwifery. My research interests relate to specialist practice, community living for persons with an intellectual disability and supporting families. I have a keen interest in working with and supporting practice staff in research and publications.   

Research Interests

My research interests relate to specialist practice, community living for persons with an intellectual disability and supporting families. My research and interests have focused on issues relevant to people with intellectual disability and their families and intellectual disability nursing support. I have undertaken studies on families' views of clients moving from a long-stay institution to a community based setting, clinical nurse specialists in intellectual disability practice in Ireland and research into nurse education in Ireland at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. In addition I work with services supporting research projects such as developing nursing documentation and Patient Own Drug Scheme (PODs) in a specialist palliative care inpatient unit.
