ABSTRACT
This article discusses a study of networking activities of learning disability and intellectual disability nurses in Great Britain and Ireland. The study sent a survey questionnaire to nurses through electronic mail messages. It found that nurses use different specialist local, regional, national and international networks. It also showed the use of electronic and virtual networks by nurses. In addition, the study noted the implication that networking offers a medium to reflect safely on the practice.
