    Multi-centred research studies provide an evidence base to guide nursing practice. However, little has been written about the processes involved in setting up such projects. This article draws on literature to highlight the advantages and disadvantages of multi-centred research studies as well as identifying areas that require particular consideration during the planning stages. The authors reflect on their own experience of submitting a multi-centred research study for funding, outlining the problems encountered and key elements of successful collaboration.
