A UAB professor takes a leadership role in designing better ways for patients to participate in clinical trials.

ivankova wNataliya V. Ivankova, Ph.D., an associate professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, has been named qualitative research editor for the American Journal of Health Behavior.

The AJHB, which is managed by PNG Publications, chose Ivankova over 30 other well-qualified candidates.

Ivankova, who joined the UAB Department of Health Services Administration in August 2013, holds a joint appointment in the UAB Department of Adult/Acute Health, Chronic Care and Foundations, School of Nursing. Her work has helped provide a methodological foundation for social and health sciences researchers in designing and conducting mixed methods studies, adding patients’ and other participants’ voices to traditional clinical trials and experimental designs.

The philosophy of the journal is “to improve the quality of life through multidisciplinary health efforts in fostering a better understanding of the multidimensional nature of both individuals and social systems as they relate to health behaviors.”

Ivankova also serves as associate editor of the Journal of Mixed Methods Research. At UAB she teaches graduate-level advanced research methods courses, including courses in mixed methods and qualitative research designs.
