In this chapter, will explore some of the steps for conducting multimethod approaches to systematic reviews. Mixed-method synthesis designs include both quantitative and qualitative designs. We begin with a brief overview and rationale for conducting mixed-method designs in social work. We then consider the epistemologies and ontologies employed in different research traditions and the possibilities for bridging these differences. The aim is to assess the potential common ground that makes mixed-method designs possible, if not favorable. We then introduce some current attempts to integrate and synthesize qualitative and quantitative research.
