Online communities valuable for specialist nurses

  • 1 Comment

Online networks can be particularly valuable to nurses working in highly specialist fields, according to Canadian researchers.

They assessed the views of 16 nurses on an online community of practice for homeless care, finding it was seen as a “place to share stories, validate practice and adapt best practices”.

The authors said: “Online communities of practice can be valuable to nurses in specialised fields with limited peer support and access to information resources.”

  • This sounds like a great idea - just to have that extra support. I'm sure you can feel isolated in specialist roles and there will be situations that you have not encountered before so it's great to be able to lean on each other and share with like-minded practitioners.
