Trinity's Professor of Geriatric Medicine Receives Stroke Champion Award 2011
Dec 06, 2011
Professor of Geriatric Medicine, Des O’Neill was recently awarded the Irish Heart Foundation Boehringer Ingelheim Stroke Champion Award in recognition of his work as pioneer in promoting better services for people with stroke in Ireland for the past two decades.
After initial work in scoping out the needs of those with stroke in the early 1990s, Professor O’Neill set up the first acute stroke service in Ireland in the Adelaide and Meath Hospital incorporating the National Children’s Hospital in Tallaght. This service has gone from strength to strength and has led the way in stroke service development in Ireland.
In 2008, Professor O’Neill was the principal investigator for Irish Heart Foundation’s National Stroke Audit – which revealed the lack of services for stroke patients in Ireland. Professor O’Neill regularly contributes to academic publications on all aspects of stroke care and is a strong advocate for care of the elderly in Ireland.
