Abstract

The presence and active participation of a specialist breast care nurse, as both a member and employed health professional in an online support community, can have positive effects on the knowledge, understanding, and supportive care of online community members who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and their supporters. The nurse in this instance is a SBCN; however, other specialist nurses could undertake a similar role within other disease-specific support websites.
