Summary Meta-synthesis refers to a range of approaches by which existing qualitative studies in healthcare can bereviewed and compared. There is increasing use of meta-synthesis to ensure the clinical applicability offindings from qualitative studies, in healthcare generally, and in the creative arts therapies specifically.Qualitative method research can sometimes lack immediate clinical relevance, as such studies usuallyfocus on the experiences of a small number of participants. Additionally, the results are often presented ingreat detail; finely elaborated, and described conceptually. Findings reported in this way can be engaging,and even emotionally compelling, however the utility of these outcomes for clinical practice can belimited. Meta-synthesis of multiple studies aims to ensure that findings from qualitative methods studiescan be more easily, and effectively, applied in health and social care programs. Three approaches to metasynthesisare briefly presented here; meta-ethnography, narrative synthesis, and critical interpretivesynthesis. A procedure for presentation of meta-synthesis reviews is provided.
