If you follow medical literature or journals on social media, you've probably seen more and more journals publish visual abstracts of research articles through these venues. While it isn't always easy to distill down a large amount of data and research into an easy-to-understand visual, more and more scholarly journals are jumping on the #visual abstract bandwagon.
Thanks to a colleague in Graduate Medical Education at my institution, I helped create a visual abstract for an article published last month (see below). In a future WHSLA blog post, I'll cover some of the common tools and general principles to create visual abstracts.
Have you worked on a visual abstract? Let us know in the comments below.
