I became an academic later in my career and was a practicing nurse for twenty years. I have a PhD in Computer Science and have also completed an MEd in Education and Training Management and an MSc in Health Informatics. Currently I am chair of the National Standards Authority of Ireland Health Informatics Standards Consortium (NSAI HISC) and Director of the Center for eIntegrated Care (CeIC) in the Faculty of Science and Health. I am also a funded investigator with Adapt Research Center with SFI 2025. My current research activity includes acting as an advisor to different agencies on topics relating to interoperability. Since 2016 I am the Director of the DCU SNHS ICNP User Group an accredited research center for the International Classification for Nursing Practice in Ireland. Funded research in the past five years includes a HSE public services contract for concepts standards and information modelling for the national health and social care data dictionary. Current research includes an Enterprise Ireland Disruptive Technology Fund with the Insight Research Center on uptake and use of digital IoT and self management support care delivery . Through Adapt SFI I am supervisor to an Elite S research fellow through the EU Marie Curie programme.
My teaching interests include; health informatics, health promotion,  interoperability and use of technology enhanced learning resources in both undergraduate and post graduate education,  I am currently supervising three PhD students, and am lead editor and author on the 5th edition of An Introduction to Nursing Informatics published January 2021 through the Springer Health Informatics Series.

Other Activities

Description
A two week workshop for 40 Romanian nurses on eHealth was completed in August of 2013 . Material and design of the workshop was a joint effort with NMBI

Research Interests

My key research interests include the development and use of health informatics standards in health system design. I am partcularly interested in patient centered integrated models of care delivery. I have expertise in terminology and enterprise architecture development for interoperability . My PhD was on the development of archetypes for future shared records of care. A key principle underpinning the design of the prototype archetypes was to capture pertinent data relating to patient centred outcomes and to involve the patient in the decision making process of their care to facilitate self care management.
Current research includes development of conceptual models underpinned by ontologies and advancing the nusing contribution to health informatics standards and system development for interoperability. I am currently the chair of the National Standards Authority of Ireland Health Informatics Standards Consortium. I am Director of the Center for eIntegrated Care in DCU and a funded investigator with the Adapt Research Center.
