The growth in international research collaboration is a substantial change from the research picture some time ago. Research ‘without walls’ is now a reality within the grasp of many nurse clinicians and researchers alike. The need to promote evidence and research based practice in the area of wound care is significant with communication being the ‘key’ to the success of research teams. The example we present here is of nurses working together on research in wound care. The paper profiles the strategies used in the development and facilitation of research in this important area of nursing care. This collaboration has culminated in a larger scale study anticipated to be conducted over 3 countries resulting in more networks being developed, truly opening up the internationalisation nursing research potential.
