APhA-APRS ESAS Nuts and Bolts for Getting Started in Mixed Methods Research


Mixed methods research balances qualitative data—motivations, perceptions, and expectations of a phenomenon—with quantitative data that characterizes general relationships among variables of interest. During this session, you’ll learn about research questions that can be answered with mixed methods, familiar mixed method designs, and requirements for grant applications.
