Course content

The purpose and value of mixed-methods systematic reviews. Methods for synthesising qualitative and quantitative research including explanatory sequential, exploratory sequential, and convergent synthesis methods including an overview of realist synthesis methods. The course is for you if you are interested in understanding how mixed-method synthesis provides a deeper understanding of complex interventions and their implementation. It is suitable for you if you already have an understanding of systematic review methods – i.e. you have had in-depth training and/or conducted a systematic review (either quantitative or qualitative) before. The mixed methods course is NOT suitable for you if you are new to systematic reviews as it does not provide basic systematic review (screening, data extraction, quality assessment) or meta-analysis training.

Online course testimonials: 

The activities themselves were well designed and resulted in learning, I was happily surprised how much I got out of them.”
“The lectures were delivered very well. Clear and interesting and I really liked the You Tube vids. It was well facilitated and a very useful topic for my work at the moment.” 
“The course materials were great. But the best was probably your ability to explain and talk through the content in a very comprehensible manner. I do believe that the online format worked very well the way you used it”
“Even though online, the feeling of community and shared experience was palpable. The care that Katie, Judy & Natalie took with the sessions was excellent.
