Overview

Sinead completed her BSc in Sport Sciences at Brunel University in 2011. She then moved to the University of Exeter to study for a MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine.

During her time as a Masters student, Sinead became very interested in the effects of dietary nitrate supplementation and lifestyle choices on cardiovascular health and exercise tolerance and went on to pursue a PhD in this area.

In 2017, Sinead joined the University of Exeter Medical School Primary Care department as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow where her research focuses on the detection and management of postural hypotension, hypertension and atrial fibrillation in primary care and the implementation of a home-based cardiac rehabilitation programme (REACH-HF) in the NHS.

Research grants

  • 2020 National Institute for Health Research
    We will develop a digitally delivered version of the training course for the REACH-HF home-based cardiac rehabilitation programme. We aim to test the feasibility and acceptability of the revised training and compare the resulting quality of delivery with benchmarks set in the REACH-HF trial. This will ensure that quality of intervention delivery can be maintained when moving to a less intensive training format.
  • 2020 SW AHSN
    The aim of this project was to adapt the home-based cardiac rehabilitation (REACH-HF) healthcare professional training programme so that it could be delivered online during the COVID-19 pandemic. This enabled clinicians to provide heart failure patients and caregivers an alternative to rehabilitation classes that are traditionally provided in hospital or community centres but are currently unavailable during the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • 2020 BHF Research Project
    The aim of this project is to create a digital version of the home-based cardiac rehabilitation programme for patients with heart failure (REACH-HF) to improve patient choice of, and accessibility to, cardiac rehabilitation.
  • 2019 The Stroke Association
    Using data from the INTERPRESS-IPD Collaboration, which holds >33,000 individual records from 14 international studies, we aim to i) examine the relationship between arm and leg blood pressure; ii) develop and validate a multivariable model predicting arm blood pressure from leg blood pressure; iii) investigate the prognostic role of leg blood pressure in cardiovascular event and mortality risk prediction.
  • 2019 The Thalidomide Trust
    The aim of this project is to support Thalidomide Trust beneficiaries in collaborating with researchers, as public advisors, in determining the relationship between arm and leg blood pressure using an IPD meta-analysis (project funded by the Stroke Association)
  • 2019 National Centre for Rural Health and Care
    The aim of this study is to understand the facilitators of, and barriers to, taking up and/or remaining in rural dispensing primary care employment. We also aim to elucidate the value placed on dispensing from the perspectives of the multidisciplinary team.
