It is acknowledged that qualitative health research often generates ethical dilemmas, and these are not easily solved by application of codes of practice (Cormack, 2000, 23-46). Any research study involves a number of different stakeholders, potentially including the research team and the institution for which they work, the professional organizations they may represent, the participants, the sponsors, policy-makers who may use results, various groups affected by those results, and the wider public.
