This article contains the reflections of two researchers - one with and one without learning disabilities. They worked together to analyse the data of an ethnographic study of people with learning difficulties with cancer.
The contributions of the user researcher to the data analysis were found to complement those of the other members of the research team. There were also unexpected benefits in terms of developing a more equal and supportive relationship between the two researchers.
