Plurality of Methodologies to Bridge the Gap Between Research and Practice: A Case Study in Infertility Research

Roni Berger, Marilyn S. Paul

Abstract


This article discusses the benefit of combining a quantitative and qualitative approach in studying social phenomena and illustrates it relative to the experience of individuals struggling with infertility. The combined use of the two methodologies allows capturing a comprehensive, nuanced and expansive picture of infertility, providing information to help bridge the gap between research and practice, and offering implications for policy and further research.
