Mixed Methods Systematic Review and Searching the Evidence Base Courses


13:30 - 14:30


University of Leeds
Clarendon way, Leeds, LS2 9NL

Evenement type

Mixed methods systematic reviews combine qualitative and quantitative evidence to answer complex applied health and public health questions. These methods are becoming increasingly important as we seek to understand why interventions may have different results for different people in different situations. This course will explore the current thinking on approaches to mixed methods systematic reviews.

You can attend all six half-days, or just the ‘Review’ course (four half-days) or the evidence search course (two half-days).
