Child Health

As well as training children’s nurses, we have a national and international profile in research on:

  • The care needs of sick children, especially post-operative pain and palliative care.
  • Child public health. We lead on, or take part in, a number of projects including
    • Autism Prevalence
    • Post-primary school food and exercise provision
    • Cross cultural collaboration on school food and exercise infrastructure
    • Information systems for measuring the quality of children’s and young adult’s lives across the EU
    • Research needs for child health in Europe
    • Data linkage for health and social care

For further information on current research, recent projects, and prospects for collaboration, please contact Dr Mary Rose Sweeney or Professor Anthony Staines.
