Abstract

Mixed methods research is characterized by the use and integration of quantitative and qualitative strands of data within a single study or program of inquiry. Mixed methods research, often referred as “third research paradigm”, has gained popularity among pharmacy practice researchers in recent years as it brings together strengths of both qualitative and quantitative methods. This chapter introduces basic concepts of mixed methods research and its application in pharmacy practice research. Four commonly used typologies within mixed methods research have been described and examples from the pharmacy practice literature have been used to demonstrate various applications of mixed methods research. We have also briefly outlined how to evaluate a mixed methods study.
