The article highlights a study conducted by R. K. Valaitis and colleagues, and published in the "Journal of Advanced Nursing" which evaluated the views of community health nurses (working with homeless persons) on online communities of practice as a communication resource for them. Results revealed two groups with differing opinions; one emphasized on using the site to promote awareness of homelessness issues, while the other saw the online community as a communication tool.
