Many clinical practice issues are sufficiently complicated that neither a purely quantitative or qualitative approach can generate a comprehensive perspective of the issue. Particularly for investigating evaluative questions—such as the effectiveness of a program or treatment or the impact of a policy—some combination of quantitative and qualitative methods can be much more illuminating than relying on one method alone.

In this Discussion, you consider the use of a mixed-methods design in health care research studies.

To prepare:

  • With      the Learning Resources in mind, and reflecting on what you have explored      throughout this course, consider the benefits of using a mixed-methods      research approach.
  • Brainstorm      nursing practice situations in which using a      mixed-methods design would be beneficial. Select one situation to focus on      for the purposes of this Discussion. Consider how the quantitative and      qualitative data would complement one another to provide a richer analysis      and conclusion.
  • Also      consider the challenges you might encounter in using a mixed-methods      approach: data collection, analysis, or synthesis of qualitative and      quantitative findings.

By tomorrow November 7, 2017 write 550 words essay in APA format with at least 3 references from the list below. Apply the level one headings as numbered below:

Post a cohesive response to the following:

  1. Briefly      explain your selected situation and why utilizing a mixed-methods approach      would be beneficial.
  2. Evaluate      how the quantitative and qualitative data would complement one another.
  3. Discuss      the challenges you might encounter in using mixed methods for the      situation you selected and how would you address these challenges.
