The purpose of this research was to describe and examine the basic nature of ethical problems that are experienced by persons with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
The participants were 25 persons with AIDS and 5 significant persons, not infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, who provided contextual understanding.
The conceptual framework and method combined ethical inquiry and phenomenology.
During an indepth audiotaped interview, each participant answered the question, « What situation involving AIDS has caused you the most conflict about the right thing to do? » To assure scientific adequacy, the participant validated the analysis of the first interview in a second interview 2 weeks later, and five experts and two independent judges validated the combined analyses.
