Description: Meta-study is an exciting new opportunity for the analysis and synthesis of qualitative research findings. Over the last two decades, a wide range of methods and approaches originating from the social and health sciences have provided a wealth of new knowledge sources from which to develop theory.This book provides step-by-step directions for how to conduct a meta-study, as well as recommendations for tools and standards for the application of this approach.Meta-study entails an exhaustive analysis of the theory, method, and findings of research in a substantive area. These analytic processes form the foundation upon which a credible synthesis of new knowledge can be explored. Meta-study permits investigators to:{ look beyond individual findings{ critically interpret variations and contradictions in the body of available research{ move toward the potential for knowledge synthesisThe authors of this timely volume:{ differentiate between meta-analysis and meta-synthesis{ write in a how-to style{ illustrate each step with examples from their own meta-study projects in the substantive field of chronic illness{ use their own experience with performing a meta-study to explain the process, including past mistakes and retrospective insight

My substantive research has been primarily in the fields of chronic illness and cancer experience and relational aspects of health service delivery within these illness contexts. I am intrigued by the complexity of the challenge associated with ensuring that all patients receive the information and support they require in order to live as well as possible despite these conditions. I work with health care professionals, health service decision makers, and patient advocacy groups to find better ways to assist patients in navigating health care systems and negotiating for the health supports they require. My research has focused particular attention on the insights that health care consumers contribute to our understanding of ideological and structural barriers within our current systems of service delivery. Toward this end, I also work on methodological options toward ensuring that experiential knowledge obtained from consumer perspective research is appropriately designed to be useful within an evidence-oriented health care planning context.
