Current Positions

Chief Investigator for The HIP Trial: Management of Hypotension in the Extremely Low Gestational
age newborn. This is a consortium I created and lead. It consists of 13 partners including
neonatologists, clinical trial experts, neurophysiologists, cardiologists, developmental specialists,
ethicists from 9 countries around Europe and North America. It is funded by the Seventh Framework
Program European Union. There are over 40 members of this consortium. We have had a number of
key achievements to date, including one of the first consortia to obtain a paediatric investigational plan
with an aim to submit a paediatric use marketing authorisation for dopamine in the paediatric
population. I presented our application to the European Medicines Agency in The clinical trial on the
extreme preterm infant is due to start in late August.

Principal Investigator, Science Foundation Ireland, INFANT Centre, University College Cork. I am the
sole neonatologist in this Centre, and am a PI a number of targeted projects (Neuroprobe, Neoview and Enrich). 

Principal Investigator, ASSERT Centre, University College Cork.

Co Principal Investigator SafeBoosC Trial; Safeguarding the brain of our smallest children – an
investigator-initiated phase II feasibility randomised clinical trial on near-infrared spectroscopy
monitoring combine with defined treatment guidelines versus standard monitoring and care in
premature infants. This is a Danish led international consortium including ten partners from around
Europe. The Danish group identified my expertise in this area and we are a leading participant in this
extremely important project.

Principal Investigator : Formal Resuscitation Training Courses for reducing mortality and morbidity.
Cochrane collaboration. I have led this initiatiev for the last 4 years. My Co-Collaborators include

Teaching Activities

Teaching Interests

Clinical teaching lies at the heart of medical education and it is my belief is that every clinical encounter provides an opportunity to learn. I believe that in our interaction with patients we serve as role models to learners, and as clinical teachers must never forget this point in the professional development of our students. We want students who can problem solve quickly, be effective communicators and behave professionally. My teaching philosophy is student centred, using a cognitive apprenticeship model based on small group collaborative learning with onsite reflection. I became familiar with this approach as a research fellow in McGill University where I undertook a number of teaching modules including `Teaching when there is no time to teach' and `Actions Speak Louder than words: Promoting Interaction in teaching',  `BEDSIDE approach to teaching and also the `One minute Teacher'. 

As a consultant in Ireland now for the last 7 years I have been engaged in many forms of learning: medical undergraduates and postgraduates, nursing students, neonatal nurses, midwifery and ethics students. My practice has evolved over time, and my teaching philosophy is student centred and reflective.

Postgraduate Teaching

In both the Coombe Hospital and since taking up post in Cork University Maternity Hospital I haveled the postgraduate teaching program in neonatology. In 2006 and 2007, I won teaching awards atthe Coombe for my overall contribution to postgraduate teaching. My teaching sessions areinteractive and include journal clubs, case presentations, topic discussions, guideline development andconsultant led teaching. I encourage the juniors to take ownership of their teaching program and provide them with direction through the mentorship program we offer our junior trainees. For example prior to presenting their work to the group of trainees, their mentor will look over the quality of the presentation and guide the trainee where this is required. I previously introduced reflectivepractice in the form of online surveys to appraise the quality of the program and to enhance futureprograms. The key to success with trainees is effective mentorship. In practical terms this means initially sitting down and devising training plan for the duration of the rotation. The goals for the time period have to be realistic and achievable, and always require frequent one to one sessions initially to ensure things are on course.

• Higher Specialist Trainer: I am a higher specialty trainer in paediatrics and have supervised 6 specialist registrars to date, all of whom have presented at national and international meetingsincluding podium presentations at the European Society for Paediatric Research and the American Pediatric Society/Society for Pediatric Research meetings. They have all taken their projects through to publication and I have supervised over 30  publications to date with trainees as the primary author. One of my trainees won the overall prize at the Irish Perinatal Meeting in 2009 for work on the utilsation of the Neopuff device (a resuscitation device) and again in 2011 for development of an iPhone Application to assist with newborn intubation.

• Higher Specialist Training: I coordinate an annual study day on perinatal ethics. This is a jointsession delivered to higher specialist trainees in obstetrics and gynaecology and paediatrics. This incorporates national experts in paediatrics, neonatology, obstetrics and law. This hasrun very successfully over the last 2 years.

• Basic Specialist Training, On Line Ethics Module: I developed an ethics on line module forBasic Specialty Training (BST) in Paediatrics, coordinated by the Royal College of Physicians. This forms part of the Ethics, Prescribing Skills and Blood Transfusion training Course.component of this training.

• Visiting lecturer for Higher Specialist Paediatric Trainee Study Days.

• Learning Procedural Skills: This is a very important aspect of newborn care and can prove to be very stressful for new trainees as they attempt to learn new skills, in particular neonatalintubation. This was evidenced by a national survey I recently performed of paediatric trainees, highlighting some of the inadequacies of the current training structure in paediatrics nationally. Therefore, in collaboration with Business Information System in UniversityCollege Cork, I developed a smart phone application ‘The Neotube Project’, free to download (http://itunes.apple.com/tr/app/neotube/id417628967?mt=8) to assist with neonatal intubation,and consist of text, photographs, calculator and video clips of the intubation procedure. This app has now been downloaded over 40,000 times internationally in the 105 countries. The feedback from users has been extremely positive based on emails received from users. In conjunction with the medical school we are evaluating the usefulness of this bedside application, by evaluating our trainees interaction with and use of the application. 

• CUMH Neonatal Teaching Program: I have coordinated the teaching schedule for our trainees from 2007-2012. This involved coordinating 3 weekly teaching sessions incorporating journal clubs, consultant provided teaching, guideline development.

• Visiting lecturer for Masters students in the Royal College of Surgeons Masters in Ethics andLaw program. This is a multidisciplinary group, including physicians, nurses, allied health care professionals, administrators, lawyers, and lay people. I present an interactive session on many aspects of newborn care including withdrawal of care issues, clinical research in newborn care, and consent issues.

• I am an Instructor on the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) and the STABLE NewbornCourses, providing training courses to a wide range of health care professionals including neonatal nurse and midwives, junior doctors in various specialties and also paramedics. I do approximately four of these sessions annually. I am particularly interested in the NRP, and am leading a Cochrane review on this very important aspect of newborn care.

• Molecular Medicine Ireland (MMI): I lecture postgraduate students on the clinician scientist fellowship programme of MMI and the

• MSc in Obstetrics and Gynaecology UCC: I provide an afternoon session annually on theimportant aspects of newborn care.
