Looking for an ‘at a glance’ single page to determine which type of data visualization chart is helpful in order to clearly communicate your results?
This PDF flowchart at http://betterevaluation.org/plan/describe/visualise_data is a very handy reference! The flowchart guides you towards considering the appropriate data visualization chart options after your initial response to the question of “What would you like to show?” answers of comparison, distribution, composition, or relationship. There are brief descriptions of the charts at the Better Evaluation data visualization page that you can click through to get additional information such as a deviation bar graph that includes synonyms, a base definition, examples of how the chart is used, advice about their use, and links to resources for creating them.

Collaborations can advance nursing care and improve patient outcomes. Nurses need easy access to specific resources to practice evidence based care and they require effective skills to use them. Librarians provide the evidence-based resources and support training. This session will describe a successful partnership in introducing and promoting the Nursing Reference Center (NRC) at the Point of Care throughout the Department of Nursing via the shared governance Council structure. Participants will be encouraged to share how they are collaborating with nurses at their institutions to support evidence based practice and nursing research activities.
