      What is meta-ethnography and how do you do it?

      Background Evidence-based health and social care requires robust syntheses of qualitative research studies – qualitative evidence syntheses to increase our understanding of people’s experiences to inform policy and practice. Meta-ethnography is a popular and influential interpretive methodology for synthesising qualitative research studies in health and social care. Developed in 1988 by sociologists in education Noblit and Hare, the systematic, seven-phase meta-ethnography methodology has evolved and advanced in the subsequent 30 years. Aim This workshop aims to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the key principles of meta-ethnography conduct including the complex analytic synthesis processes of ‘translation’ and ‘synthesising translations.’ Learning outcomes In this course, participants will be enabled to: Describe the 7 phases of meta-ethnography Understand how meta-ethnography differs from other QES methodologies Understand when use of meta-ethnography is and is not appropriate Identify the range of literature search and selection methods suitable for meta-ethnography Identify the impact of different strategies for reading primary studies on the output of a meta-ethnography Attain an understanding of the principles for conducting meta-ethnography phases 4 to 6: determining how studies are related, translation, synthesis of translations and line of argument synthesis Teaching strategies The workshop will consist of presentations, led by Emma France, covering each of the phases of meta-ethnography conduct, small group activities and plenary discussions, providing participants with the opportunity to reflect on key aspects and principles of meta-ethnography conduct. The number of participants for the course is limited to 35.
