We are carrying out the eMERGe project to improve the way researchers report meta-ethnographies and to ensure that the best use is made of research evidence for the benefit of people who use health and social care services
Background of Meta-ethnography
Developed by Noblit and Hare, in the 1980s. They designed the approach to address the inability of an aggregative synthesis of five ethnographic studies to explain the failure of racial desegregation in schools.
What is meta-ethnography?
Meta-ethnography is a respected and thorough qualitative synthesis method following 7 steps in which researchers select, analyse and interpret qualitative studies though a process of translation in order to answer focused questions on a specific topic and gain new insights.
