The ability to save the life of an extremely premature baby has increased substantially over the past decade. Survival, however, can be associated with unfavorable outcomes for both the baby and the family. Neonatal nurses as the main caregivers for the baby and family are witness to the highs and lows associated with caring for these tiny and fragile humans. The treatments and outcomes of these babies are a source of ethical dilemmas and moral distress in the nurses caring for them. These ethical dilemmas are a sensitive topic, and interviewing about sensitive topics can have an impact on the participants and the researcher. Interviewing on sensitive topics and how to deal with sensitive data will be explored in this case.
