This 3.5 day institute is focused on the use of qualitative methods in mixed-methods primary studies and programs of research. The target audience is faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students in the health science disciplines; members of other practice disciplines (e.g., education, clinical psychology, social work) will also find this Institute useful. The program includes didactic sessions on designing, proposing, conducting, and disseminating the results of mixed-methods studies, interactive practice sessions, and opportunities for participants to ask questions about their own research projects.


This Institute will enable participants to:

1. Describe the points of interface between qualitative (QL) and quantitative (QN) methods in mixed-methods studies and programs of research

2. Describe issues and techniques for combining sampling, data collection, and data analysis strategies including data linking, assimilation, and visualization

3. Describe approaches for proposing and reporting the results of mixed methods studies

21 Hours direct contact; 10 hours out-of-class assignments

31 ANCC Contact Hours available
