MEDIA REVIEWS
"The content is highly applicable to real life research teams in the areas of clinical research, health services research, and implementation science, providing sound content and practical advice. The authors have synthesized and pull key concepts from a variety of sources to provide a concise resource." -- Linda M. Herrick, South Dakota State University
"Everything from the references, to the topics, checklists, conceptual graphic representations, and organizers, interviews, and resources, all contribute to the content and aid with understanding and/or application. ...It addresses specific MM research as it pertains to health sciences in a way that other texts just do not even attempt." -- Denise L. Winsor, University of Memphis
"[This text is] a very pragmatic approach to mixed methods research; excellent resources, tables, and figures [are] provided, along with cases and examples of value to researchers and grant reviewers. Its relevance to practice, education, and research, as well as to potential policy implications, is a strong focus that would make this a valued textbook for any researcher!" -- Karen Devereaux Melillo, University of Massachusetts Lowell
"The text is cutting edge. It leads the way with its focus on team dynamics. [The authors] succeed in making the book relevant and practical. They also articulate a number of key insights in the area of mixed methods that rarely get addressed, such as teams and conflict. Great read with a lot of good, practical information for mixed methods researchers at all levels. The practical approach of this text makes it an innovative and valuable resource." -- John G. Schumacher, University of Maryland
Given the increased use of mixed methods in the health sciences, this text is timely and unique in that it offers a discipline-specific focus that is both relevant and practical... an excellent and valuable resource for all health researchers using mixed methods, regardless of experience. -- David Nelson, Macmillan research fellow, University of Lincoln
