The Burdett Trust for Nursing funded a 2-year project to pilot an online community of practice to enable health visitors to share, manage and co-produce knowledge in a virtual space. The aim of the project was to develop a robust web-based tool to allow practitioners to share expertise and promote learning to empower them to exchange professional knowledge and best practice with other practitioners across organisational boundaries. In this paper, the authors reflect on the process of developing an online community of practice for health visiting, and report some initial findings and challenges from the pilot study.
