Mixed Methods in Prevention and Health Services Research
Importance of stand-alone phases
Prime examples of conditions that by their very nature need to be studied from many perspectives.
Most based on criteria for rigor developed for quantitative research designs
Design ranked according to extent the study is internally valid or free from bias
RCTs best evidence
Just because excluded from hierarchies does not mean it is less valuable
Implementation of interventions in real world requires knowledge about patients’ values and experiences
Evaluate the effects of interventions on health outcomes
Examine views of participants
Distinguish between components of interventions
Understand a non-significant outcome
To develop measures
To identify relevant phenomena
To interpret/explain quantitative data
Investigate complex phenomena
Study special populations
Before a trial
To ‘trial’ the trial
To develop the intervention
To test tools
During a trial
To describe and explain within and between subject variation discerned from instruments
To understand whether intervention delivered as planned
Patient reaction to intervention
After a trial
To select individuals for more intensive study based on scores
Interview or observe to validate outcomes
To help explain non-significant findings
How one or more individuals experience a phenomenon
Learning the culture of a group and what it is like to be a member of that group from the perspective of the members
A detailed account of one or more cases-focus on each case a a whole unit as it exists in the world
An inductive approach for generating theories or explanations
Qualitative studies enhance the meaningfulness of interventions
Situate them in the real world of patients and their caregivers
Shed light on facilitators and barriers to the uptake of promising interventions
Illuminate aspects of the patient experience
Can identify barriers to implementing and sustaining community-based prevention programs
Ensure patient safety, including reduction of misuse of medical therapies and oversights of clinical care
Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
