Example: 
In a multi-stage design there might be two stages. In the first stage we sample providers. In the second stage we sample patients. At the provider stage we might sample physician practices and hospitals (provider stage has two stage samples). At the patient stage we might take many approaches to sampling patients within a practice (multiple stage sample schemes (OrderRelation, TemporalIntervalRelation, etc) depending on how the practice chooses to participate. There might be just one scheme for sampling patients within hospitals that we can use across all hospitals.
