Mixed methods lets the strengths of one approach even out the limitations of another. Employing presentations and interactive discussions, participants will learn:

1. Rationale for using mixed methods research
2. Core mixed-methods study designs
3. Applications of mixed methods to population health research

Workshop Outcomes:

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Articulate the rationale for using mixed methods research in population health
2. Identify problems or questions that warrant the use of mixed methods
3. Understand and apply core mixed methods study designs

Recommended Audience: Population health researchers and practitioners, healthcare or public health operations personnel, and policy partners

Class Size: 20 regular slots/12 student slots
