Abstract

The qualitative and qualitative realms of research have been popularly used in mutually exclusive approaches within the social and biomedical sciences, respectively. Mixed-methodologies employed as a way of investigating topical areas of interest can disproportionately favor one approach over the other, which presents significant challenges in translating research findings into practical applications for institutional partners. This presentation explores complementary mixed-methodologies within research areas in medical anthropology and bioethics. Ethnographic examples from previous works done in and out of institutional healthcare settings will be used as points of analysis in fleshing out how mixed-methodologies 1) offer theoretical and conceptual depth, 2) allow researchers to exercise analytical rigor, and 3) facilitate the development of practical solutions.

Presentation Type and Comments
