HQIP held a most enjoyable seminar recently on presenting healthcare quality data to clinicians and the public. It’s all now online on YouTube and I recommend it to anyone working in this field.
It took them hours to do my make-up but it was worth it.
Really, I’d now like to reverse the order of topics in my talk (and a nother version of it popped up at Hertfordshire University Business School), starting with interactivity and trends, then going into chart design and perception a bit more. Stats could appear at the end if there’s time, along with software, if there’s time. I’ve also decided to ditch the silly pictures and have concrete examples, good and bad, at every stage. We live and learn (mostly).
