Research Profile

Eileen Savage

Biography

Eileen Savage is Chair in Nursing and was appointed to this position in October 2013.  She was Dean of the School of Nursing and Midwifery from January 2012-October 2018. She has significant academic leadership experience and has led developments in undergraduate education, post-graduate/graduate education, and research. She has spearheaded significant developments in the School including a growth in research activity and income, and appointment of senior staff at professorial level; there is now an active vibrant culture of research with an emphasis on collaborative interdisciplinary research and large grant applications.   At executive level, she has led the growth of online learning in postgraduate education, and internationalization with a consistent growth of students from countries outside Ireland including India, China, Philippines, Korea, and Saudi Arabia. She is currently a Visiting Professor at University of AirLangga, Indonesia with a particular focus on research capacity building within the nursing faculty.  

In October 2018, she has taken up the role of Vice Dean of Graduate Studies and Inter professional Learning for the College of Medicine and Health, working in collaboration with all six Schools -
 Clinical Therapies,  Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing & Midwifery, Public Health, and Pharmacy.  This role involves strategic development of world class fourth level education contributing to University policy and procedures to ensure high quality and optimum experience for research students at MSc and doctoral levels. This role will also involve an international agenda such as growing the number of international research students as well as strengthening inward and outward mobility of students. The role specific to inter professional learning involves developing 'real-life' team learning for practice with healthcare students studying and learning together from undergraduate through to postgraduate levels.  

Prior to her current position, she held the positions of Associate Professor, Senior Lecturer, and Lecturer (University College Cork). She was a Research Fellow 1999-2002, funded by the Health Research Board Ireland, and a Visiting Fellow at Yale University, USA, in 2009. She was a Cochrane Fellow, funded by Health Research board Ireland from 2009-2011.  Her clinical  nursing career was in both general and children''s nursing.  

She has an established  track record in research funding and publications.  The main focus of her research is on chronic illness management, particularly self-management, symptom management (including mental health symptoms), and the relationship between physical and mental health and well being. Professor Savage has completed studies funded by the Health Research Board, Ireland, Health Service Executive,  Department of Health,  the Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences, the Ombudsman Office for Children, and European Commission (Erasmus -multilateral programme). 
 
Professor Savage is a member of all Ireland Cochrane Collaboration and is a Cochrane Review trainer and supervisor. She is a scientific reviewer  for project grants/ and research fellowships since 2015 with the Academy of Finland.  She is co-Chair of two National Working Groups set up by the HSE to implement recommendations specific to the preparation of future healthcare professionals arising out of the Making Every Contact Count Framework and the Framework for Self Management Support  for individuals with chronic conditions. These Frameworks relate to the Department of Health's Healthy Ireland strategy. 






Research Interests

My research interest is primarily on chronic illness management with a special interest in children, adolescents, and young adults. I lead a programme of research within the School of Nursing & Midwifery titled Living Well with Chronic Conditions and Disability.  The mission of this programme is to conduct national and international collaborative research toward (i) helping children, adolescents and adults manage the complexities of chronic illness/disability in their daily lives, (ii) developing services that enhance health care provision in the management of chronic illnesses, (iii) providing a forum for children, adolescents and adults to articulate their views and to `voice' how best their health care needs can be met.  In addition to conducting studies on the management of chronic illness/disability within this programme, research specific to risk and preventative aspects of chronic illness will also be conducted. 

Specific areas of my research interests are: self-management, symptom experiences and management  experiences 
(including mental health symptoms), and integrated care.  Studies are conducted across a range of chronic illnesses including asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, childhood leukaemia, inflammatory bowel disease, and COPD.  

I supervise Masters research students and PhD students undertaking studies within the programme of research on chronic illness management.
