A Realist Synthesis Protocol Paper

Many moons ago, I did some work with a colleague on a grant application for a realist synthesis on self-management of chronic conditions and I was very pleased to be notified recently that this colleague has now published their protocol:

Understanding how self-management interventions work for disadvantaged populations living with chronic conditions: protocol for a realist synthesis.

Here’s a link to the full-text pdf of the article.

I’m also honoured to have been acknowledged in the paper for my work on the original grant application. I remember the grant application requiring *a lot* of work and I can see from this paper that the amount of work involved in a conducting a realist synthesis is commensurate with the amount of work it took to put the grant application together. I’m really glad to see that Sue and her colleagues have undertaken this ambitious project and I’m eagerly awaiting the findings paper now!
