Systematic Synthesis of Qualitative Research

This chapter discusses using qualitative evidence to create actionable knowledge and the application of the products of qualitative syntheses in practice. We also provide suggestions for a more seamless integration of qualitative reviews within both the evidence-based practice movement and other systematic review methods. The contribution of social work to the development and refinement of systematic reviews of qualitative research is invaluable given social work’s focus on both the effectiveness of its interventions and the lived experiences of the people we serve. In a very real sense, social workers are uniquely positioned to advance the evidence needed for effective services while advocating for client participation in knowledge creation activities that affect them.

Keywords:   social work, evidence-based practice, implementation, practice integration, knowledge translation and exchange
