Undertaking Sensitive Research in the Health and Social Sciences : Managing Boundaries, Emotions and Risks, Paperback / softback Book

Undertaking Sensitive Research in the Health and Social Sciences : Managing Boundaries, Emotions and Risks Paperback / softback

Description

Undertaking qualitative research on sensitive topics often raises a variety of ethical problems.

Based on empirical research, this book documents experiences throughout the entire research process: from conceptualization, ethics approval, fieldwork, to analysis and publication.

It presents readers with stories from the researcher's perspective and synthesizes these experiences into a conceptual framework that will assist researchers to undertake qualitative research.

Each section discusses potential pitfalls, provides quotes and stories and reviews the relevant literature and theory, providing readers with a description of the process of conducting sensitive research from the perspective of those actually doing the research.

This is not a methodology textbook, rather, it discusses the issues faced by researchers during the conduct of qualitative research on sensitive topics, such as death and dying, sexuality, homelessness, HIV/AIDS, cancer.

It provides practical recommendations for researchers and Research Ethics Committees.

It will also be a useful resource for anyone interested in undertaking a research project on sensitive topics and for those teaching qualitative methods across a broad range of disciplines.
