Tableau, one type of visualization software, can be used as a tool for teaching informatics and how to convey meaning behind data. It can also be used to share research and quality improvement project results. Dr. Lyn Hardy presented an overview of data visualization use in research presentations and funding proposals at the CON on June 18, 2019. She also described how Tableau is being used to educate OSU doctoral students in data use for patient care and leadership. Lyn concluded the session with a brief overview of Tableau and how it is used within the context of a pain data set. View a recording of Lyn’s workshop, and contact her if you would like to know more about data visualization with Tableau. Her workshop slides are also available.
