Nursing Ethics 4 (1):49-56 (1997)

Given the dramatic rise in the frequency of nursing research that involves eliciting personal information, one would expect that attempts to maintain the balance between the aspirations of researchers and the needs and rights of patients would lead to extensive discussion of the ethical issues arising. However, they have received little attention in the literature. This paper outlines and discusses some of the issues associated with qualitative research. The discussion converges on the specific case of phenomenological research, which involves the invasion of participants’ personal worlds, and draws attention to some of the ethical issues that arise when the participants are psychiatric patients
