Projects

  • Title
    • MAMMI - Maternal health And Maternal Morbidity in Ireland
  • Summary
    • The MAMMI Study is a study looking at the health and health problems of women during pregnancy and during the first year after the birth of their first baby. Many women experience motherhood in excellent physical health and enjoy the emotional fulfilment that it brings. Other mothers experience health problems, sometimes caused by pregnancy or an event that happens during or after the baby's birth. The study is being done because the lack of information on the health of women after the baby's birth prevents us from understanding what causes some of these problems for women in Ireland. The information that women provide by completing this survey will help fill in some of the gaps in the current knowledge about women's health after childbirth. The MAMMI study is funded by the Health Research Board.

  • Title
    • COST Action IS1405 - Birth Research
  • Summary
    • The BIRTH COST Action brings together over 100 scientists, artists, professionals, activists, political stakeholders and service users from around 30 countries in Europe and beyond, to try to understand the range and limits of normal childbirth physiology in different populations, individuals, and contexts. It includes five key areas: Biomedicine (epigenetics and the hygiene hypothesis) Biomechanics (maternal and fetal movement) Socio-cultural perspectives (social expectations and experiences, including marginalised and migrant populations) Organizational perspectives (the effect of organizational contexts and cultures on variation in rates of childbirth interventions) Neuro-psycho-social perspectives (how inter-personal actions and behaviours affect physiological processes)
  • Funding Agency
    • EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020
  • Title
    • Public Participation Initiative (PPI)
  • Summary
    • Establishing a genuine public involvement in research initiative where women and service users can identify and prioritise research that is most important to them and can influence change and improve issues which concern them most. Of immense concern to all health service providers and stakeholders, not least the women themselves, is the fact that considerable proportions of women did not talk about many of these problems, and this has led to a national silence surrounding childbearing women's health. This means considerable proportions of women have unmet health needs, and demonstrates that a new approach to postpartum maternal health surveillance and service delivery is needed. Establishing a public involvement in research initiative offers unique opportunities to learn directly from women who used the services over time, shape the future research agenda and, in the long term, influence services.
  • Funding Agency
    • Health Service Executive (HSE)
  • Title
    • HRB Event Sponsorship Scheme
  • Summary
    • To host an international conference - Improving Maternal Health - From Evidence Into Action - held in October 2018, in Dublin. This event brought together mothers and families, health professionals, policymakers, and leading Irish and international academics and researchers to demonstrate how research can be used to improve maternal health services, and raise awareness of the findings of the HRB-funded Maternal health And Maternal Morbidity (MAMMI) study.

    • Health Research Board
  • Title
    • Women's Health After Motherhood (WHAM)
  • Summary
    • To deliver a Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) for women about their health during pregnancy and after the birth, to - address women's knowledge gaps - provide mother-friendly trustworthy informa􀆟on, accessible from home - enable women to understand health issues are normal/not normal - enable women to engage with others to overcome feelings of aloneness/isola􀆟on - provide self-help, problem preven􀆟on, health promo􀆟on strategies - detail available healthcare services and resources - provide the knowledge/tools needed to access services - give professionals complementary materials to enhance care
  • Funding Agency
    • European Institute for Innovation & Technology (EIT)
  • Title
    • Motherhood, empowerment, sustainable self-help: addressing gaps in education with science
  • Summary
    • This project aims to increase women's engagement with scientific knowledge by using technology-assisted self-help educational materials that share scientific knowledge, demonstrate its personal relevance, stimulate women to self-assess their health and then use the health promoting videos and materials to improve their health.
  • Funding Agency
    • Science Foundation Ireland
  • Title
    • TCD Dean's Award
  • Summary
    • The project will identify one generic and one urinary incontinence-specific quality of life measurement instrument through a systematic review of the literature, test the feasibility and validity of the instruments in pregnant and postpartum women, and survey all 19 maternity hospitals and services in Ireland to benchmark the provision of services, care and interventions for preventing and treating UI. This seed funding will enable the development of key elements that lay the groundwork for a future multicentre randomised controlled trial (RCT) of an intervention to improve UI outcomes for pregnant woman in Ireland.
  • Title
    • HRB Collaboration in Ireland for Clinical Effectiveness Reviews (HRB-CICER)
  • Summary
    • To support the work of the NCEC, the Clinical Effectiveness Unit, Department of Health and the Guideline Developers, the CICER project will undertake evidence reviews and provide scientific support for the development of the clinical guidelines. The CICER team comprises a dedicated multi-disciplinary research team supported by staff from the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) team in HIQA and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland as well as national and international clinical and methodological experts.
