[Scientific session research presentation] Interviews are commonly used in research to collect data for analysis. Interviewing processes need to be consistent with the underlying research paradigm chosen to examine a question, and tailored to both the aims and subjects of the study. This presentation will address the development of an interviewing approach for a grounded theory study of first-time mothers of medically fragile infants. For grounded theory, data collection can be appropriately operationalized using the semi-structured interview. The processes and issues involved in developing and using a paradigm-consistent  approach to semi-structured interviews in this specialized population of women will be outlined.  Data from the study will be used to illustrate specific interviewing considerations for this population. These considerations include grounded theory and constructivist underpinnings for interviewing, potential vulnerability of the population, access, facilitation, communication and rapport strategies, interview structure, minimization of power differentials, protection from harm, and study rigor in the context of interviewing and qualitative data collection.
