P a g e | 13 QUALITATIVE EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS IN PAIN Limitations of our review Although our search was wide, our resources meant that the search was not exhaustive and we may not have identified all QES. This is a rapidly proliferating field of enquiry and QES studies are likely to increase in number. We did not include cancer or neoplasm as a specific search term. The search focused on studies that identified pain or arthritis in title or abstract. We did not identify a review of children‟s pain, chronic pain after surgery or experience of opioid use in non-cancer pain. QES provides an interpretation of primary studies and some argue that the process of synthesising studies takes us away from the first-hand experience
