Abstract

ualitative research is a useful and important way to describe and analyze the experiences of adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with cancer. However, undertaking qualitative research with AYAs living with, or beyond, a cancer diagnosis requires careful planning and a well-informed approach for participants with a high level of vulnerability and who are at a crucial stage developmentally. This article reflects on the challenges of including AYAs with cancer between the ages of 16 and 25 years in qualitative research. By drawing on each author's own experiences of engaging in qualitative research interviews with AYAs with cancer, the article provides suggestions regarding how best to manage challenges and yield valuable data describing their experiences. Insights that are shared between qualitative researchers in this field may assist in preparing for the challenges posed by conducting qualitative research with this group and may help researchers to manage this activity successfully.
