This article outlines the development of a website in the UK that seeks to bring guidance research and practice closer together. The shared knowledge base underpinning the website was created from the contextualised problems faced by potential user groups (policy makers, managers, practitioners, students, trainees, researchers and trainers). Six expert groups, drawn from these user groups, looked at key issues related to their expertise and provided an on-line commentary on relevant documents and research findings. This developmental process represented a major contribution to research capacity building within the UK guidance community.
