This five day intensive course aims to introduce participants to mixed (qualitative and quantitative) research methodologies. It aims to provide participants with the knowledge, understanding and research skills necessary to put mixed methods into practice, both for evidence review and empirical studies.
This course is designed for those who have some experience or knowledge of both qualitative and quantitative research methods in health research. It is suitable for PhD students, research active/interested health and social care professionals as well as more experienced researchers wishing to expand their skill set.
The course is as an accredited course leading to a University of Warwick Postgraduate Award (PGA Qualification), 20 CATs.
