Mixed methods research: integrating paradigms or data collection methods?

Wednesday 25 October
Room 108, West Downs, University of Winchester, Romsey Road, Winchester, Hampshire SO22 5HT

​Research Seminar Series Four Autumn 2017

​​Presenter: Professor Judith Lathlean, Visiting Professor, HAWRG

Chair: Dr David Walters, Head of the Centre for the Arts as Wellbeing

In this seminar, Judith will be considering the ever more popular adoption of a mixed methods approach to research in health and social care. She has undertaken several such studies herself and supervised many doctoral students engaging in this type of research. As a result she has recognised the importance of understanding what constitutes ‘mixed methods’, in addressing the question as to whether this is an issue of different paradigms or ways in which data are gathered. The seminar will focus on examples of research using this design; it will also draw upon a chapter that Judith has co-authored.
