This case provides an account of a 2-year study and is designed to give other researchers an understanding of the methodological, ethical and personal considerations needed in doing video-based research on real-life clinical consultations or other naturally occurring potentially sensitive events. In particular, it considers how qualitative research involves working in contexts that may not be fully known about before the research begins and that cannot always be controlled. This leads to dilemmas that emerge in the field and that must be appropriately dealt with in ways that avoid compromising the research, the researcher and the participants.
