Abstract

Context and Aim: It is vital that qualitative evidence be made accessible to policy-makers and clinicians. By synthesizing and critically examining the qualitative research we aim to highlight key priority areas that can be targeted to improve the response to women, children, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, and provide better support for health professionals. This symposium reports on the findings and methodological processes of four qualitative meta-syntheses conducted in 2018 focusing on these areas.
