The School of Population Health is pleased to have on board Dr Éidín Ní Shé, who is joining as Senior Lecturer, Health Management. Dr Éidín has expertise in leading projects in the areas of co-design, consumer engagement, evaluation and health systems. She previously worked as a research fellow at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research Education and Innovation in Health Systems, University College Dublin (UCD). She worked across the centre, advancing work in systems thinking, interdisciplinary and intersectoral working, patient and public involvement, realist synthesis, as well as contributing to methodological innovation and developing strong networks and partnerships.

Her recent research has involved the development of a frailty pathway, supporting the implementation of assisted-decision-making via the development of an educational intervention, capturing integrated care competencies, enabling junior doctors to speak up about safety and facilitating seldom heard voices in research.

Dr Éidín’s work has a strong focus on strengthening patient involvement and engagement in healthcare delivery and research. A strong advocate for a rights-based approach, Dr Eiden has written prolifically on sexual and reproductive rights, migrant health, gender equality and social justice. As she shifts base from Ireland to Australia, her joining has been delayed by almost a year owing to COVID-19 related travel restrictions. We are glad to welcome Éidín back in Sydney, where she has worked before and has strong local links.
