By synthesizing results of qualitative studies it is possible to explore the meaning that is attributed to recovery in different contexts, and thus also develop an in-depth understanding of the process of recovery. In the first stage our research, which is conducted by several minor constellations of researchers in our group, focuses on patients' experiences of recovery in different contexts. The results are expected to contribute knowledge that can form the basis for further research on how recovery can be promoted.
