Oncology nursing has become an important and popular specialist area of care. Evidence indicates that there is a disappointingly low level of funded research. This paper seeks to identify some of the key constraints which have inhibited the development of cancer nursing research. It is proposed that there are two priorities to promoting research. First, there is a need to produce the next generation of research trained cancer nurses. Secondly, the need for a coordinated programme of basic and applied cancer nursing research. This paper discusses the difficulties of obtaining research funding and adequate supervision for higher degrees. In addition, key constraints in clinical nursing and nurse education are identified. In conclusion, it is proposed that there is an urgent need for specific cancer-care research funded studentships and the establishment of a coordinated programme of research.
