My Work

Professor Hickey is the RCSI Director and one of 3 co-Directors of the HRB SPHeRE Programme, a HRB funded inter-disciplinary structured PhD programme in population health and health-services research (PHHSR). She is also PI on an Interdisciplinary Capacity Enhancement (ICE) award that focusses on the post-stroke cognitive impairment - dementia continuum, with a view to developing interventions to rehabilitate cognitive impairment after stroke.

In collaboration with colleagues in stroke medicine, biostatistics, epidemiology, physiotherapy, neuropsychology and health economics, Professor Hickey's research is focused on stroke prevention, the impact of stroke awareness campaigns (such as FAST) on population awareness of stroke and appropriate response, and on stroke outcomes. Along with collaborators, post-doctoral research fellows and SPHeRE PhD students, Professor Hickey is currently conducting research in cognition and adherence to secondary preventive medications and rehabilitation post-stroke; epidemiological and economic modelling of post-stroke cognitive impairment; and development of an intervention to address cognitive impairment after stroke.
