Last Wednesday, November 16, Valéry Ridde and her colleagues Manuela De Allegri, Quan Nha Hong, Anne-Marie Turcotte-Tremblay and Nicolas Ortiz Ruis organized a session on mixed methods at HSR 2016 (Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research), which took place in Vancouver throughout the whole week. The session, entitled “Application and challenges to the use of mixed methods in health systems research” was presented under the theme “Future learning and evaluation approaches for health system development”.
Through a mix of presentations and active group participatory approaches, this session aimed at identifying experiences, challenges, and solutions related to the application of mixed methods protocols in health systems research across a variety of settings in high, low and middle income countries.
With more than 60 participants, this session was a success, and the presentations made during this session are presented below, at the request of the participants.
