Abstract

The elicitation of societal views about health care priority setting is an important, contemporary research area and there are a number of studies which apply either qualitative techniques or quantitative preference elicitation methods. However there are methodological challenges in connecting qualitative information (what perspectives exist about a subject) with quantitative questions (to what extent are those perspectives ‘supported’ in a wider population). In this paper we present an integrated, mixed-methods approach to the elicitation of public perspectives in two, linked studies applying Q methodology.
