When qualitative researchers care about a particular human phenomenon or experience, it leads them to take action to make a positive difference. In this panel, we explore various ways in which qualitative researchers who care are moved to act—selecting a research topic that addresses needs of an “invisible” or underserved population, applying research findings in clinical and community settings, engaging in community service based on research experiences, and more. We also discuss the risks to the researcher who cares—burn-out, depression, anger—and the need for qualitative researchers to make a priority out of self-care.
