NATIONAL SUCCESS FOR UL MEDICO-LEGAL RESEARCH CONSORTIUM
On 22 December 2021, the HSE Open Access Research Awards were announced in an online ceremony. It was a year of unprecedented interest in the awards and the judging panel had to be expanded to deal with the surge in entries.
A paper authored by a team of international experts from the University of Limerick, University of Galway, University College Cork, Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and the University of Cambridge was awarded the inaugural Special Merit Prize at this ceremony.
The paper was derived from a study that was led by Professor Gautam Gulati, Dr. Alan Cusack, Professor Colum Dunne and Professor Shane Kilocmmins at the University of Limerick. The article, entitled ‘Challenges for People with Intellectual Disabilities in Law Enforcement Interactions in Ireland: Thematic Analysis Informed by 1537 Person-Years’ Experience’ can be accessed at the following link:
