In this webinar, speakers from the HRB Evidence Centre described their approach to conducting mixed methods evidence reviews using two case studies. They focused on how they designed mixed methods search strategies, their use of machine learning via text mining for screening, and how they analysed and integrated qualitative and quantitative findings. The HRB Evidence Centre conducts evidence syntheses commissioned by the Department of Health to inform health policy.
