Steve Mallet is presenting ways to better visualize data from different studies. The starting point was a graph published summarzing the results of 12 studies on quality of life measured by DLQI. The improved visualisations are available on the Wonderful Wednesday blog
How to present data from multiple studies is depending on the message you want to give and the purpose of the meta analysis. The first proposal shows that even individual values can be displayed to inform about the distribution of values. More examples show the advantages of horizontal display of the outcome. Another display allows for comparison of result over time even for different measurement timepoints in the studies. Finally a grable is presented condensing all important information on one page. The next challenge will be to dicplay diary data. See the Wonderful Wednesday homepage
