Clinical Nurse Leaders was described, as were the two phases of the study. Phase One was an individual interview with each of the CNLs and Phase Two a series of action research group meetings with myself and the same group of CNLs co-researching. Issues relating to ethics, rigour, my worldview as well as the position of myself in a dual role of researcher and employee in the organisation where the research was conducted have been discussed. Chapters five to eight are concerned with the illustration of data interpretation through the two phases of the research. They contain figures that illustrate the continuing cyclical evolutionary process of the project, including attendance to content, process and premise. These tracings start with the initial objective for the research, subsequent questions plus interpretation of interview and action research group work. The voice of the individual CNL is highlighted as part of the presentation of individual themes with all seven voices informing the themes arrived at in Phase One. Following on from this the group voice of Phase Two is announced which informs the last stage of the project.
