Leading and co-ordinating a research project is a complex undertaking involving management of people, processes, budget and material resources. The task is even more complex when there are nine nurse researchers collecting and analysing data in the midst of their practice. In this paper, Theresa Mitchell and Steve Jones describe the experiences of the project lead and co-ordinator responsible for planning and managing such a project in the Oncology Centre in Gloucestershire, UK. Using examples from the project, the authors share some of the potential problems encountered during research activities, and propose strategies and remedies to address them
