Dr Elaine Meehan is a Research Fellow at the Ageing Research Centre, University of Limerick. With a background in Public Health, Elaine completed her PhD at the University of Melbourne, investigating the use, costs, accessibility, and organisation of healthcare services for children with cerebral palsy. Prior to joining the Ageing Research Centre, Elaine worked as a Post-Doctoral researcher at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, and more recently, at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, University College Cork.

Elaine has worked on a broad range of population-based and health services research studies, primarily related to disability and ageing. Her current research explores unmet healthcare needs and inequities in access to healthcare for adults with disabilities and the effect that this has on morbidity and premature mortality in this group. Elaine is particularly interested in clinical databases and registries, and utilising data linkage methodologies to maximise the utility of health-related data.
