    Levels of Stress in Medical Students Due to COVID-19.Lorcan O'Byrne, Blánaid Gavin, Dimitrios Adamis, You Xin Lim & Fiona McNicholas - 2021 - Journal of Medical Ethics 47 (6):383-388.
    For medical schools, the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated examination and curricular restructuring as well as significant changes to clinical attachments. With the available evidence suggesting that medical students’ mental health status is already poorer than that of the general population, with academic stress being a chief predictor, such changes are likely to have a significant effect on these students. This online, cross-sectional study aimed to determine the impact of COVID-19 on perceived stress levels of medical students, investigate possible contributing and alleviating (...)

Aim Our aim was to examine REC policies, experiences and concerns with respect to the payment of participants in research projects in Ireland. Method Postal survey of all RECs in Ireland.

    A Systematic Review of the Literature on Ethical Aspects of Transitional Care Between Child- and Adult-Orientated Health Services.Moli Paul, Lesley O’Hara, Priya Tah, Cathy Street, Athanasios Maras, Diane Purper Ouakil, Paramala Santosh, Giulia Signorini, Swaran Preet Singh, Helena Tuomainen & Fiona McNicholas - 2018 - BMC Medical Ethics 19 (1):73.
    Healthcare policy and academic literature have promoted improving the transitional care of young people leaving child and adolescent mental health services. Despite the availability of guidance on good practice, there seems to be no readily accessible, coherent ethical analysis of transition. The ethical principles of non-maleficence, beneficence, justice and respect for autonomy can be used to justify the need for further enquiry into the ethical pros and cons of this drive to improve transitional care. The objective of this systematic review (...)
