[edit] Conclusion

"Although wikis are in their infancy, as are many other Web 2.0 applications, they offer the potential for collaborative online working and information sharing. While they are not likely to replace the printed book or journal as a final authoritative source in the near future, they offer a useful starting point in a nurse’s search for evidence-based information to help patients and also help them to understand the type of information they are likely to find on the internet"
