Evolving friendships and shifting ethical dilemmas: fieldworkers' experiences in a short term community based study in Kenya.by Dorcas Kamuya, Sally Theobold, Patrick K Munywoki, Dorothy Koech, Wenzel P Geissler, Sassy Molyneux
In this paper, we draw on qualitative observation and interview data collected alongside a six month basic science study which involved a team of FWs regularly visiting 47 participating households in their homes. The qualitative study documented how relationships between field workers and research participants were initiated, developed and evolved over the course of the study, the shifting dilemmas FWs faced and how they handled them.
