Note: This form should only be used for reviews that follow a convergent integrated approach, i.e. integration of qualitative data and ‘qualitized’ data following data transformation. For reviews that follow a convergent segregated approach, reviewers should use separate data extraction forms: the JBI quantitative data extraction tool and the JBI qualitative data extraction tool.
