Book 2: Synthesizing Qualitative Evidence
$19.99 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins / Joanna Briggs Institute
November 2011 

Authors: Prof Alan Pearson, Dr Suzi Robertson-Malt and Dr Leslie Rittinmeyer

Practitioners and patients are called upon to make numerous health care decisions and, in doing so, need to weigh various types of information before taking action. This information comes from a myriad of sources, including the results of well-designed research; information related to the preferences of patients/clients and their relevant others; the practitioner’s own experiences; and the nature and norms of the setting and culture in which the care is being delivered. Methods to synthesize qualitative evidence are now emerging and this text examines the methodological bases to qualitative synthesis and describes the processes involved in the conduct of a rigorous synthesis of qualitative evidence, with a particular focus on Meta-Aggregation.
