Mixed methods research experts to give SoN Dean’s Lecture

Mixed methods research experts John Creswell and Joe Gallo will give insight into the future of research methodology at the School of Nursing from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Monday, March 19. Researchers, students and the public are invited to learn more about the gold standard of research design, which brings together multiple qualitative and quantitative strategies. A reception follows the lecture.

Creswell, a professor at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, is a founding editor of the Journal of Mixed Methods Research and was first author of the recent National Institutes of Health–commissioned paper Best Practices for Mixed Methods Research in the Health Sciences. Co-presenting is Joe Gallo, a professor in the Department of Mental Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, who conducts a wide range of research with an eye toward integrative interventions.

This presentation is part of Nursing’s Dean’s Lecture Series, co-sponsored by the school’s P30 Center of Excellence for Cardiovascular Health and the University of Maryland School of Social Work.
