  • 12:00 PM CET

Mixed methods research involves the mixing of at least one qualitative and one quantitative method in the same research project or set of related projects and has increased in nephrology over the last 10 years. This webinar aims to advance the understanding of mixed methods research within the kidney community. 

Learning objectives:

  • The reasons for combining qualitative and quantitative methods in a single project.
  • Common mixed-methods study designs, including when to use each and how to integrate findings.
  • How mixed-methods can be applied to investigate problems in renal medicine.
