Biography

Dónal has a BSc in Pharmacy from Trinity College Dublin (1982), a PhD in Medicinal Chemistry/Pharmacognosy from The Ohio State University, USA (1988) and an MA in Bioethics from Ashland Theology School, USA (1994). I have been at DCU since 2003 where I am Associate Professor in the School of Nursing and Human Sciences. I have taught several different ethics modules at DCU in the School of Nursing and Human Sciences, and in other schools and areas. I was chair of the DCU Research Ethics Committee (2010-2016). I am also Visiting Professor of Ethics, in the European Master in Disaster Medicine, Università del Piemonte Orientale, Italy and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at The Ohio State University, USA.
My research interests are in two main areas: healthcare ethics, and systematic reviewing. For the last several years, his focus has been on ethical issues in disasters, examining both healthcare ethics in disaster responses and research ethics in disasters. He was Chair of the EU-funded COST Action (2012-2016) on Disaster Bioethics (http://DisasterBioethics.eu) and is the Principal Investigator on the R2HC-funded research project, Post-Research Ethics Analysis (http://PREAportal.org)
His interests in systematic reviewing have led to his appointment as Convenor of Cochrane Ireland (http://ireland.cochrane.org). The Cochrane Collaboration is an independent, international organisation that conducts systematic reviews of health interventions and promotes the use of the best available evidence in healthcare.  

Research Interests

I have two main areas of research interest: healthcare ethics and systematic reviewing. My research in ethics has focused most recently on Disaster Bioethics: the ethical issues that arise for healthcare practitioners and researchers during disasters. I also have a long-standing interest in the ethics of emerging biotechnology, especially nanotechnology and stem cell research. Foundational ethical issues that have been part of my research include personhood, human dignity and moral reasoning. I am interested in their interplay of reason and emotions in ethics, especially in moral perception and how narratives help engage people with ethics. I am involved in the role of various types of narrative (novels, film, song lyrics, etc.) in ethics education. I am also interested in how religious belief influences ethics and the role of spirituality in health and healing.
My interests in systematic reviewing and evidence-based practice have led to my involvement in the Cochrane Collaboration, where I was Convenor of Cochrane Ireland (2014-2017), helping to organise Cochrane training and systematic reviewing on the island of Ireland. I am particularly interested in the intersection of ethics and evidence in disasters and humanitarian work.
