Systematic Synthesis of Qualitative Research

While acknowledging the long-standing debate regarding the appraisal of qualitative studies, we introduce a study appraisal form that has been created to assess methodological rigor, credibility, dependability, confirmability, transferability, and relevance within and across qualitative studies. We also provide an illustration regarding the applicability of the appraisal form. To illustrate the inclusion of qualitative studies within the family of systematic reviews, we present a working systematic review that includes both intervention studies and qualitative studies to assess family group decision making within a child welfare context.

Keywords:   critical appraisal, quality assessment, trustworthiness, rigor, credibility, quality checklist
