National Institutes of Health Best Practices for Combining Qualitative and Quantitative Research
The National Institutes of Health has released recommendations for scientists conducting mixed methods health research, which combines the strengths of quantitative research and qualitative research. Despite the increased interest in mixed methods research in health fields and at NIH, prior to this report, there was limited guidance to help scientists developing applications for NIH funding that featured mixed methods designs, nor was there guidance for the reviewers at NIH who assess the quality of these applications.
