Summary Aim: The present study examined the barriers to the implementation of a nutritional intervention project and sought ways to enhance future projects.

Methods: The study, utilising a qualitative approach, included participants from key areas involved in the project and who were employed by either the university or regional aged care facility.

Results: Through analysis the themes 'successes', 'stumbling blocks' and 'solutions' emerged. Within these themes descriptive stories of what worked, what did not work and suggestions for future projects are depicted.

Conclusions:
Communication was the connecting element of each theme, suggesting effective verbal and written communication that ensures ownership by all involved is essential for successful clinical research projects. Strategies to enhance this process have been included to assist future researchers.
