The aim of meta-ethnography is to arrive at an interpretation that is greater than that offered by the individual studies making up its constituent parts. It is the translative aspect that distinguishes meta-ethnography from other methods for qualitative synthesis. The worked example we use to illustrate this approach is on lay beliefs about medicine-taking for asthma, which was part of a broader synthesis which included other kinds of medicines for a range of other diseases and conditions. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd..
