Introduction to Mixed Methods Research (MMR) is an online, ten-week course that offers an introduction to mixed methods research in the health sciences. Participants will learn how qualitative and quantitative data can be integrated to capture the perspectives of patients, providers, communities, or healthcare organizations in order to answer complex research questions. The course will also cover formulating research questions, collecting and analyzing different types of data, choosing the appropriate mixed methods designs, and interpreting mixed method research results.
