    Congratulations to Pat Bazeley on the publication of her new book "Integrating Analyses in Mixed Methods Research" with SAGE publications.


    Integrating Analyses for Mixed Methods Research goes beyond mixed methods research design and data collection, providing a pragmatic discussion of the challenges of effectively integrating data to facilitate a more comprehensive and rigorous level of analysis. Showcasing a range of strategies for integrating different sources and forms of data as well as different approaches in analysis, readers learn to plan, conduct, and disseminate complex analyses with confidence.

    Key techniques include:

    • Building an integrative framework
    • Analyzing sequential, complementary and comparative data
    • Identifying patterns and contrasts in linked data
    • Categorizing, counting, and blending mixed data
    • Managing dissonance and divergence
    • Transforming analysis into warranted assertions 
    With clear steps that can be tailored to any project, this book is perfect for students and researchers undertaking their own mixed methods research.


    See what others say!


    Bazeley addresses one of the biggest challenges faced by mixed methods researchers: the integration of data and interpretation of results that come from different data collection methods. She does so in a comprehensive and systematic way that is enhanced by the use of multiple examples that illustrate multiple mixed methods data analysis strategies.  Bazeley also includes a diagram for each chapter that guides readers, making it easy to follow the detailed and thoughtful process provided in this important book. In addition, she demonstrates how integration can be accomplished using a variety of software packages, thus making this an excellent guide for the new and advanced mixed methods researcher. Researchers who want to maximize the data from a mixed methods study will find this an invaluable resource. 

    Donna M. Mertens

    Professor Emeritus, Gallaudet University


    This is a book on data analysis that mixed methods enthusiasts will give a hearty welcome. Within a framework differentiating sequential and complementary analyses, Pat Bazeley systematically catalogs and richly illustrates multiple strategies for integrative mixed methods data analysis. Thoughtful examples abound that importantly enrich the text.

    Bazeley is one of the pioneers of contemporary mixed methods, and writes with authority, clarity, and a wealth of examples that make her latest contribution both cutting-edge and accessible. Data integration is now recognised as the heart of the mixed method enterprise and Bazeley gives the field a definitive treatment of the many approaches, dimensions and issues in integrating mixed methods data for analytic insight.

    Course Description


    Aims

    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.

     

    The Participants

    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.

     

    Course Leaders

    Dr Rebecca Johnson is a Mixed Methods Research Fellow at Warwick Medical School, having joined the university in 2008. Currently Rebecca works within CLAHRC -West Midlands. In this role, she focuses on mapping knowledge mobilization, synthesizing qualitative and quantitative evidence to improve health outcomes for patients and the public, and consulting on research projects involving the integration of qualitative and quantitative data.  Rebecca has a specialist interest in different forms of data integration,

     

    Dr Felicity Boardman is an Assistant Professor at Warwick Medical School, having joined the Division of Health Sciences in 2010. Felicity’s research interests centre on mixed methodologies, reproductive and genetic technologies, stigma and disability. She has worked both independently and in the context of an international mixed methods research team and has authored numerous papers using mixed and qualitative research methods, including those using large longitudinal datasets. Felicity is currently in receipt of a prestigious Wellcome Trust Investigator Award, researching the social and ethical implications of genetic screening in the UK.     

     

    Professor Frances Griffiths is head of the Division of Health Sciences at Warwick Medical School. She has expertise in social science research methods and has developed the use of mixed methods research methods for health. This includes work with complexity scientists from disciplines including mathematics, statistics and economics. Her research focuses on the impact of medical technology and information and communication technology on lay experience of health and health care, and on the experience of living with long-term conditions.

     

    Workshop Structure and Content

    The course is structured around three overarching themes:  1) Introduction and core principles of mixed methods research 2) data analysis, transformation and integration and 3) synthesis and pragmatic approaches to mixed methods research. Within the three themes, key areas such as developing a mixed methods research question, using and developing your mixed methods design, approaches to sampling, data collection and analysis and mixed methods publishing and reviewing will be covered.


    Teaching and Learning Methods

    The course will include lecture content, practical activities and small group work, with lots of opportunities to seek the advice of the facilitator. The award is assessed by the completion of a 3-4,000 word assignment, to be submitted by 11th May 2018.
