A mixed method, embedded approach to exploring participation in an exercise referral scheme

  The case aims to highlight the potential of using a mixed methods embedded design to understand the effects of an intervention and provide greater understanding of how participant circumstances influence engagement. This case derives from larger a Burdett Trust for Nursing funded project exploring gender perspectives of engagement/non-engagement in an exercise referral scheme in Scotland, United Kingdom. This case focuses on exercise referral participants and gives insight into the value of comparing results, predominantly quantitative longitudinal telephone interviews, with qualitative face-to-face semi-structured interviews. It discusses how writing field notes can add to data collection, raise awareness of bias and aid analysis.
