The plot thickens: data visualization in antimicrobial resistance research

  05 June 2021

Communicating data and research to relevant stakeholders is essential to ensure impact in practice. This is especially true for global ‘wicked’ healthcare challenges, such as antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Data visualizations can transform the increasingly growing data into more comprehensible information for exploration and communication purposes. In general, there is little guidance on selecting and designing data visualizations. This study aims to lay the ground for improving visual communication of data and research on AMR and other wicked healthcare challenge by creating an overview of the visual dictionary (incl. vocabulary and design space) for AMR research.
