Professor Catherine Hayes
Assoc Prof/Specialist in Public Health, Public Health & Primary Care

Biography

Catherine Hayes obtained her undergraduate medical degree from University College Cork. She completed the Cork Vocational Training Scheme for General Practice. She then undertook a full time MPH at University College Dublin. Having completed Higher Specialist Training in Public Health Medicine she was appointed Consultant in Public Health Medicine in the Eastern Health Board, now part of the Health Service Executive (HSE). She then obtained her Doctorate from the School of Medicine at UCD. She was appointed Associate Professor of Public Health at Trinity College Dublin in the Discipline of Public Health and Primary Care in 2011 and continues to retain a commitment to the newly formed R&D Directorate of the HSE via its Health Intelligence Function.

Her research addresses the major societal problems of tobacco and obesity identified to cause a major disease burden globally in terms of deaths and disability. It is aligned with national and international strategies and with the TCD research themes of "Cancer" and "Inclusive Society". A key focus of her work lies in the translation of the research evidence into policy and practice to achieve maximum impact.

She has completed the highly-competitive and prestigious Training in Dissemination and Implementation Research (TIDIRH) Programme at National Institutes for Health (NIH) in 2016 and was a key contributor to TIDIRH Ireland in 2018. She leads implementation science teaching and research at TCD and is the Course Director for a new Masters in Implementation Science due to commence in 2019.

The direction of her research is informed by her work as a public health specialist in the Research and Development Unit within HSE to address the impact of research outcomes on health services and on policy; by the science of dissemination and implementation, and in future the role of precision medicine in prevention.

She is a member of the All Ireland-NCI Cancer Consortium. She was successfully funded by the Health Research Board (HRB) to attend courses in Public Health aspects and Molecular aspects of Cancer Prevention at National Cancer Institute (NCI) US in 2013 and 2015.

She is the Lead PI for We Can Quit2 (WCQ2): A pilot cluster randomized trial of a community-based smoking cessation intervention for disadvantaged women in Ireland, (HRB Definitive Interventions and Feasibility Awards (DIFA) 2017) one of three national awards under the scheme. She was Co-applicant for the HRB funded European project on Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity, Knowledge Hub (DEDIPAC-KH) and Irish PI for a project on "Conditions for the successful implementation of good practice and multi-component interventions for diet, physical activity and sedentary behaviour", 2013-2016. She is Co-applicant on a HRB-funded Inter-disciplinary Capacity Enhancement Award (ICE) for Designing evaluating and implementing a pilot complex intervention in childhood obesity. This work and associated SafeFood funded project on "Weaning practices in the Island of Ireland " have potential to change policy and practice in the prevention and management of childhood obesity.

She is a Member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the National Longitudinal Study of Children: Growing Up in Ireland; Trainer and Examiner for the Faculty of Public Health Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland, former Vice-Dean and Board Member. She has over 70 publications and supervises and examines PhD and Masters students. Member of the academic assessment panel for the Structured Population and Health-services Research Education) Programme (SPHeRE),which aims to develop future leaders in Population Health from diverse backgrounds. She currently serves on the UK and Ireland Society for Social Medicine Committee (2016-2018) as External Relations Lead and is a Senior Mentor for the Society.

Research Expertise

Description

Professor Hayes's research increasingly addresses the development, implementation and evaluation of targeted interventions addressing behavioural risk factors, in particular tobacco and obesity-related determinants in prevention of chronic diseases using implementation science methodologies. Her significant research in tobacco has principally been as PI of population health trials, addressing implementation and outcomes of smoking cessation interventions on women's health. She is experienced in quantitative and qualitative research methods. Her research is informed increasingly by the science of dissemination and implementation, collaborations with the health sector addressing the impact of research outcomes on health services and on policy. Professor Hayes has a key role in developing capacity in implementation science research and developing PhDs in this field.

Projects

  • Title
    • We Can Quit 2 (WCQ2): A pilot cluster randomized trial of a peer-led community-based smoking cessation intervention for disadvantaged women in Ireland
  • Summary
    • The 'We Can Quit2' (WCQ2) pilot study is a pragmatic two-arm parallel-group cluster randomised controlled trial;. the aim is to explore the feasibility and acceptability of trial processes including recruitment and to provide estimates of sample size needed for an effectiveness RCT. This RCT will assess the impact of a community-based smoking cessation intervention for women living in disadvantaged areas on short and medium term cessation rates. This intervention (We Can Quit,WCQ), was previously developed and examined in promising feasibility research.
