This paper describes the initial establishment of the Intensive Care Coordination and Monitoring Unit (ICCMU), and reports on the implementation of a state-based intensive care Listserv, ICUConnect, for staff in ICUs in New South Wales, Australia. The aim of the Listserv was to decrease professional isolation in smaller and less resourced ICUs by developing a network based on professional peer support. The Listserv was launched in December 2003 with 130 clinical nurse consultants and nurse managers. The emphasis was on exchange of both codified and experiential information.
