We discuss challenges experienced with a discrete choice experiment where the lack of sufficient responses to power analysis may have been due to the vulnerability of the population, added caregiving burdens imposed by the pandemic, and an imbalance of benefit-to-load of participation. We also address considerations for the paradigm where the necessarily few testable attributes may limit cultural meaningfulness and generalizability, and bring into question principles of research ethics.
