Dr. Mary Mooney

Associate Professor (School of Nursing & Midwifery)
DOLIER STREET - SCHOOL OF NURSING


Current position and Address: Associate professor in general nursing. Head of General Nursing, School of Nursing and Midwifery Trinity College, 24 D"Olier Street, Dublin 2, D02 T283. I am a midwife, and a general nurse with a cardiovascular specialism. My clinical and research interests lie in health maintenance, health education, and cardiology. My PhD had a ground-breaking effect; it was the first and only RCT in the world to target and successfully reduce patient pre-hospital delay time in acute coronary syndrome (heart attack symptoms). This work was widely disseminated and has since been used to develop further international research with which I am engaged. One outcome of my PhD was my current position on the Steering Committee for a phase-3, international clinical trial, which is currently enrolling patients across 40 countries. Additional appointments include the editorial board for the Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, external expert advisor for the Health Products Regulatory Authority (cardiology division), secretary for the Irish Nurses Cardiovascular Association. I have wide-ranging multidisciplinary networks and am part of large consortia linked with research pertinent to my areas of expertise and interest. My yield in terms of research funding amounts to just over €0.5 million. The funding sources include the Health Research Board, the Adelaide Hospital Trust, Enterprise Ireland and in more recent years, pharmaceutical sources. As an invited guest speaker at national and international events, I have received prominence and recognition. I have extensive teaching experience, am consistently research active, have well-honed communication, leadership, organizational and management skills and am well renowned in the discipline of general nursing and cardiology. I have several peer"reviewed published journal articles/abstracts and over 1000 citations. Scopus ID: 7102286572; ORCID ID: 0000-0002-0689-7029. My yield in terms of research funding amounts to just under €0.5 million.
