    People with disabilities have traditionally faced exclusion from health-related research in multiple ways. They have been excluded as participants in the research agenda setting process as well as contributors to the evidence-base of treatment and intervention research. The judicious use of mixed method designs afford opportunities for more inclusive research. However, the use of both qualitative and quantitative research methods with people with disabilities necessitates careful planning. This article aims to provide insights into the exclusionary practices faced by people with disabilities, the potential of mixed methods studies to address some of these sources of exclusion, and the specific planning considerations when conducting research with various disability populations.
