Current Principal Research Interests

Inappropriate prescribing and adverse drug reactions in old age.

Inappropriate prescribing and polypharmacy are highly prevalent problems globally. These problems apply particularly in elderly patients with multiple comorbid medical conditions, requiring complex pharmacotherapy. Inappropriate prescribing and polypharmacy are associated with increased incidence of adverse drug events with consequently increased morbidity and mortality in this patient group. I and my research colleagues have devised and validated new criteria for inappropriate prescribing in older people (STOPP/START criteria) aimed at applying them in routine clinical practice for the purpose of minimizing adverse drug reactions and events. We have completed clinical trials showing that STOPP/START criteria as an intervention significantly improves medication appropriateness and reduces the rate of adverse drug reactions in acutely ill older patients in the hospital setting.

STOPP/START criteria have been updated and revised recently and published on-line in Age & Ageing in October 2014. The criteria have formed the basis of a series of grant-funded projects aimed at implementing the criteria (among other prescribing criteria) as software-based interventions in older people in the hospital setting. Principal among these projects are the 5-year EU FP7 programme-funded SENATOR project (commenced in 2012) and more recently, the Horizon 2020 programme-funded OPERAM project (due to start in June 2015). The SENATOR project, which I co-ordinate, involves collaboration with clinical colleagues in Madrid, Aberdeen, Ghent, Aberdeen and Reykjavik in a cluster randomized clinical trial of a software intervention aimed at minimizing adverse drug reactions and cost in older acutely ill hospitalized patients. The total funding made available by the EU for SENATOR is 5.938M euros. 

The OPERAM project, in which I am a co-PI, will involve another clinical trial based on another prescribing optimization software intervention in older people in hospital with acute illness. The OPERAM project will run from 2015 until 2020. OPERAM will be co-ordinated by Prof. Nicolas Rodondi at the University of Berne, Switzerland and will have a total budget of 6.6M euros.

Previous Research Interests

Restorative dental interventions in partially dentate older people.

In recent years, I have collaborated with colleagues in the UCC Dental School in the design and implementation of clinical trials of minimally invasive restorative dental treatments in older people with partial dentition. These trials have examined the effects of these interventions of nutritional status and oral health-related quality of life of older people living independently in the community. My role in these studies was in the areas of clinical trial design, facilitation of patient recruitment and co-supervision of PhD students.


Gut microbiota profiling in old age.

In 2007, I was invited to join the ELDERMET project grant application as a clinical co-PI. This project, led by Prof. Paul O'Toole (UCC Department of Microbiology), was funded for 5 million euros later that year. The project has examined the gut microbiota profiles of healthy and frail older people, looking at the effect of normal ageing, chronic disease and diet on microbiota characteristics. My role in ELDERMET was in the areas of subject proforma design and older patient recruitment.

Outreach Activities

 Description

In 2006, Dr O'Mahony wrote a proposal for the funding of a new department of Clinical Gerontology & Rehabilitation at UCC which was submitted to Atlantic Philanthropies’ Ageing Programme in Ireland. Following international review, the proposal was accepted and funded by Atlantic Philanthropies in December 2006 (€2.33M). Matched funding of €2.33M was subsequently secured from the Health Service Executive (HSE South) in 2009 which led to the appointments of UCC’s first professor and senior lecturer in Clinical Gerontology & Rehabilitation in 2009. The Diploma/Masters in Older Person Rehabilitation was successfully launched in 2010 (http://www.ucc.ie/en/ckx16/).
In 2012, a group of UCC academics with research interests in ageing and researchers at Dundalk Institute of Technology (DIT) sought EU reference site recognition under the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA) aimed at reference site status recognition. Following successful negotiation, the UCC/DIT consortium, called COLLAGE (COLLaboration on AGEing) received EU reference site status in 2013. The reference sites provide direction for over 30 other reference sites in developing/improving a range of services for older people across the EU. Dr O'Mahony is a member of the COLLAGE consortium (http://www.collage-ireland.eu/about-us/our-people/denis-omahony/).
