Abstract

This paper explores the value and limitations of in-depth qualitative interviews as a research method within healthcare practice and education. It challenges the common view that interviewing is a simple and unproblematic approach to data collection and highlights a range of structural, contextual, operational, intrapersonal, interpersonal and ethical factors which those intending to undertake such research should take into consideration when planning interviews. It also emphasises the fundamental need for those involved in interviewing to develop critical reflexivity.
