Cultivating a Visual Mindset: Infographics in Continuing Healthcare Education
Infographics offer a powerful tool in our education armamentarium.
We process images much faster than we do text, so visual communication saves time and allows more effective data retention.
On this episode of Write Medicine, I’m joined by Bhaval Shah PhD and Karen Roy MSc—co-founders of Infograph-Ed, a company delivering engaging visual communications in healthcare.
We talk about the power of visual communications in continuing healthcare education, how to develop a visual mindset and current trends in visual communications. We also discuss the design process and how to create effective visual communication through the following strategies:
- Communicate a value proposition
- Identify what your audience is looking for
- Deliver accessible member-driven content
- Evaluate your resources
- Analyze feedback to focus content on the audience’s requirements.
