Using Both Quantitative and Qualitative Methods

Post a cohesive response to the following with bold headings: • Briefly explain your selected situation and why utilizing a mixed-methods approach would be beneficial. • Evaluate how the quantitative and qualitative data would complement one another. • Discuss the challenges you might encounter in using mixed methods for the situation you selected and how would you address these challenges.

Using Both Quantitative and Qualitative Methods
Many clinical practice issues are sufficiently complicated that neither a purely quantitative or qualitative approach can generate a comprehensive perspective of the issue. Particularly for investigating evaluative questions—such as the effectiveness of a program or treatment or the impact of a policy—some combination of quantitative and qualitative methods can be much more illuminating than relying on one method alone.
In this Discussion, you consider the use of a mixed-methods design in health care research studies.

Post a cohesive response to the following:
• Briefly explain your selected situation and why utilizing a mixed-methods approach would be beneficial.
• Evaluate how the quantitative and qualitative data would complement one another.
• Discuss the challenges you might encounter in using mixed methods for the situation you selected and how would you address these challenges.
