Abstract

Mixed method of research involves both qualitative and quantitative data which helps to unravel complex research questions. This method has recently obtained popularity in medical research as it provides complete analysis of a research question. Although both quantitative and qualitative methods are different, one is not superior to the other. Both the methods have its own pros and cons. But the concurrent use of these methods would help to fill out, complete or extend the information. In this article, we have showcased how each of the method is appropriate to address a research question by using exemplars (Model case studies, prepared by authors.) and what more can done in the current scenario.
