Metrics details. Qualitative systematic reviews or qualitative evidence syntheses QES are increasingly recognised as a way to enhance the value of systematic reviews SRs of clinical trials. They can explain the mechanisms by which interventions, evaluated within trials, might achieve their effect. They can investigate differences in effects between different population groups. They can identify which outcomes are most important to patients, carers, health professionals and other stakeholders. QES can explore the impact of acceptance, feasibility, meaningfulness and implementation-related factors within a real world setting and thus contribute to the design and further refinement of future interventions.

Background: In our globalizing world, caregivers are increasingly being confronted with the challenges of providing intercultural healthcare, trying to find a dignified answer to the vulnerable situation of ethnic minority patients. Until now, international literature lacks insight in the intercultural care process as experienced by the ethnic minority patients themselves. We aim to fill this gap by analysing qualitative literature on the intercultural care encounter in the hospital setting, as experienced by ethnic minority patients. Methods: A systematic search was conducted for papers published between and Analysis and synthesis were guided by the critical interpretive synthesis approach. Results: Fifty one articles were included. Four dimensions emerged, describing the intercultural care encounter as 1 a meeting of two different cultural contexts of care, 2 in a dynamic and circular process of 3 balancing between the two cultural contexts, which is 4 influenced by mediators as concepts of being human, communication, family members and the hospital's organizational culture.

Developing a theoretical framework for your dissertation is one of the key elements of a qualitative research project. The theoretical framework is your toolbox. In the toolbox are your handy tools: a set of theories, concepts, ideas and hypotheses that you will use to build a solution to the research problem or gap you have identified. The methodology is the instruction manual: the procedure and steps you have taken, using your chosen tools, to tackle the research problem.
Aim: This paper discusses the purpose and stages of meta-synthesis and the epistemological status of knowledge generated from the technique. Particular attention is paid to exploring the contested areas of the method that remain. Background: There is a growing interest in meta-synthesis as a technique for generating new insights and understanding from qualitative health care research.
