Researchers conduct systematic reviews to bring together findings from research literature on a particular topic of interest. Unlike narrative reviews of literature, systematic reviews are empirical projects that include collecting, appraising, analyzing, and synthesizing evidence from quantitative, qualitative, and/or mixed-methods studies. Qualitative systematic reviews synthesize findings of qualitative research. Particularly in health and education fields, qualitative researchers increasingly develop and conduct qualitative systematic reviews to understand, explore, and gain new insights into the perspectives and contexts of people’s experiences. The purpose of this webinar is to introduce the whats, hows, and whys of qualitative systematic reviews. Drawing on examples from published qualitative systematic reviews, we will explore and compare different aims and types of qualitative systematic reviews, general steps involved in conducting them, and issues qualitative systematic reviewers often deliberate before, during, and after conducting their reviews. Webinar attendees should gain a clear sense of why and how qualitative systematic reviews are conducted and helpful (re)sources to support designing and conducting of their own qualitative systematic review projects.
