Dave o’Carroll

Dave O’Carroll has worked for the Royal College of Nursing since 1997, a body which represents nurses and nursing, promotes excellence in practice and shapes health policies. Throughout his career at the RCN, Dave has worked to promote the value of nursing research to support high-quality patient care and improve practice.

He wants to make it easier for nursing staff to use knowledge in practice and policy making, to understand what knowledge is available and how they can access and contribute to it. In his day-to-day role, Dave is responsible for the maintenance of the website and weekly electronic bulletin, as well as helping to implement an organisation-wide research strategy.
