This workshop intends to help healthcare researchers develop a better understanding of mixed methods research (MMR) and how it could be used in researching topics of interest. Given its comprehensive nature (mixing both quantitative and qualitative data and analysis), MMR provides researchers unique opportunities.

Carrying out a complete MMR study poses some challenges for researchers. This workshop will discuss both the opportunities and the challenges so that researchers can make an informed decision regarding the use of MMR. The workshop will use a mixture of presentation, group work, and discussion to achieve its objectives.

Learning Objectives

  • Develop an understanding of key concepts in MMR
  • Differentiate between eclectic and mixed methods research
  • Critical analysis of the published MMR studies in nursing
  • Understand the design and implementation of sample MMR in nursing
