J Kidd, M Finlayson
Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing 2006, 13 (4): 423-8

However, when co-constructing narratives with participants, the nurse researcher also faces unexplored ethical issues that arise out of the emotional intensity and professional responsibility inherent in the relationship. Such issues may be recognized and managed using clinical supervision in addition to academic supervision. Researcher vulnerability adds depth and complexity to human inquiry.
