1) Finding the editor. This is often done by the F1/ F2 year reps as they tend to be highly motivated and organised although doesn't have to be. The best thing is to find a couple of enthusiastic F1s and a couple of enthusiastic SHOs and make them all editors.
2) Time commitments. All we ask for is for them to do the survey at the start and at the end. We already have the proforma and so this is quick to do and analyse. This takes probably an hour or two for a normal sized hospital. To add content to the site, this is usually about 1-2 hours to week, either at work or at home. Usually when you find out some useful information you wish you'd known before you add it to the site so it can be shared and retained, and it actually makes you more efficient so it will also save the editors some time themselves too.
3) The editing. Its really easy. We have an editors guide, along with conditions of use (no patient information, nothing copyright, nothing defamatory, no passwords etc. )
