Question
I am using mixed method research design. My research has 4 steps.
For step 1 I am doing qualitative (KII), step 2 quantitative (Cross-sectional survey), step 3 qualitative (FGD) and step 4 quantitative (Delphi method).
I will find the situation of the research problem through KII. After that the factors from KII and factors from previous literature and theory, I will do the cross-sectional survey. Than with factors from KII and cross-sectional survey, I will conduct the FGD. Later I will evaluate it through Delphi method.
What type of mixed method design should I use? Exploratory sequential design or any other?
Thank you.

The Government of Bangladesh enacted the Smoking and Tobacco Products Usage (Control) Act in 2005, imposed ban on most forms of direct advertisement of tobacco products and regulation on sponsorships and some other types of promotion. The Act was amended in 2013, making the ban comprehensive on tobacco advertising, promotion, and sponsorship with FCTC MPOWER policies. In this amendment, all kinds of direct and indirect advertising of tobacco products were restricted. Despite having a comprehensive tobacco control law and measures to enforce ban on TAPS, tobacco companies and traders continue TASP activities for the sake of business. The common forms of violations are found at POS. POSs have become a strategic location for tobacco companies to advertise tobacco brands. Tobacco companies adapt their marketing and promotion strategies from time to time to remain one step ahead of the law enforcing agencies. They employ different strategies for different contexts. The recent increasing trend in tobacco consumption raises questions about the effectiveness of the current implementation strategy of the provision – TAPS Ban. This research aims to explore effective community-level interventions to enforce TAPS Ban and identify implementing policy gaps. It is a cross-sectional study where a qualitative method was followed. Key Informant Interviews and a Physical observation checklist were the instruments for data collection. The study found that apart from the government agencies, NGOs, civil society organizations, community organizations, youth clubs, community volunteers, etc. need to step up and support the TAPS BAN interventions at different levels. The study suggests that close coordination between the national level task force and local taskforces could potentially lead to improved effectiveness.
