After years of conflicted, epistemological debate about the best
approach for conducting research, social and human behavior scientists
have acknowledged what we have inherently known all along: understanding
the complexity and mystery of humans requires every resource and tool that
we can muster! Design Complexity, sometimes known as mixed methods, is a
pragmatic and powerful approach that health care scientists now use to
'make sense' of their world. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the
current state of Design Complexity's development. The paper will provide a
synopsis of the theoretical and methodological foundations of Design
Complexity, distinguish it from qualitative and quantitative methodology,
and clarify terminology and definitions. Current controversies within the
field will also be discussed and specific examples provided to illustrate
topics.
