Adele Hughes Published in Journal

MAIS student Adele Hughes co-authored an article on the effectiveness of popular education in health care in the Journal of Mixed Methods Research in November 2013.

The article, La Palabra es Salud (The Word Is Health): Combining Mixed Methods and CBPR to Understand the Comparative Effectiveness of Popular and Conventional Education, outlines quantitative and qualitative research that suggests:

"... popular education can be at least as effective as conventional education for increasing knowledge, and more effective for increasing empowerment and producing multifaceted skills and understandings. Several community health worker training programs in the United States already use popular education as their primary philosophy and methodology. [The results of this research] provide support for this practice as well as for using popular education in health promotion efforts generally."

The Journal of Mixed Methods Research, published by Sage Publications, is an innovative, interdisciplinary, international, peer-reviewed publication that focuses on empirical, methodological and theoretical articles about mixed methods research across the social, behavioral, health and human sciences.
