The nurses at Marie Curie Cancer Care (MCCC) are spread throughout the United Kingdom and often have little interaction with one another. The goals of our project were to develop the specifications for and the implementation of an online community for the nurses at MCCC, and to ensure its success through a strong marketing campaign. To create the online community we surveyed nurses, wrote a specification documenting our implementation plan, implemented the community, and advertised the completed community. The online community we have developed has been initially deployed within the MCCC intranet, with plans to fully deploy it on the Internet in the summer of 2003.
