As a research design, multiple segment factorial vignettes (MSFV) combine elements of experimental designs and probability sampling with the inductive, exploratory approach of qualitative research. In MSFVs used in research, participants are presented with short stories about hypothetical characters. These stories are comprised of 2-5 segments in which randomly assigned dimensions are introduced sequentially. Researchers control the occurrence and timing of when dimensions are presented. Respondents are asked questions after each segment. MSFVs may include written, oral, and visual stimuli. These efficient designs elicit quantitative data about causal relations and qualitative data within complex, multidimensional contexts. This paper describes the first use of the MSFV as an intervention protocol. In a study examining ways of helping support network members create a plan for reaching help quickly with older adults living alone, we used a modified version of the MSFV as a teaching intervention. Although the MSFV has been used only in research prior to this study, it lends itself to being adapted as a teaching aid. People find MSFVs interesting and they relate their own experiences with vignette stories. We present evidence of this from our ongoing study and describe the process by which we used MSFVs to help systematically help netwrok members help older individuals plan how they would reach help quickly in a household emergency.
