Abstract
Aim: To inform participants about the complex processes in conducting meta-ethnography, including the analytic synthesis processes of ‘translation’ and ‘synthesising translations.’ Background: Meta-ethnography is a popular and influential interpretive methodology for synthesising qualitative studies in health and social care. Developed in 1988 by education ethnographers Noblit and Hare, the systematic, seven-phase meta-ethnography methodology has evolved and advanced in the subsequent 30 years. Summary of Work/ workshop content: Following the publication of ‘What’s wrong with meta-ethnography’ (E France et al, BMC Medical Research Methodology.2014, 14:119), this interactive workshop will give participants opportunities to learn about the practicalities of conducting a meta-ethnography through reflective discussion and practical activities. Participants will learn more about the complex processes in meta-ethnography conduct including the analytic synthesis processes of ‘translation’ and ‘synthesising translations.’ This workshop will be led by Emma France, a senior lecturer who is experienced in the conduct, supervision, peer review and grant review of meta-ethnographies. She led a team of academics, along with international experts including George W. Noblit, to develop the new forthcoming National Institute of Health Research-funded ‘eMERGe’ reporting guidance for meta-ethnography. This workshop will suit those curious about meta-ethnography and qualitative evidence synthesis. Ideally participants will have some qualitative research knowledge or experience. Participants will leave with more in-depth knowledge of how to conduct and better report a meta-ethnography.
