LNCtips.com: Creating a Chart in Excel
Excel is a spreadsheet that can be used by legal nurse consultants to enhance their reports. Excel charts are great to visually illustrate data such as weight changes and changes in lab values. Knowledge of financial formulas and mathematical functions are not necessary to create a professional-appearing chart or graph.
Excel charts are commonly used in narrative summaries, PowerPoint presentations and even as demonstrative exhibits at trial. Since new LNCs may not be accustomed to creating Excel charts, this short video provides an overview of this process.
This video depicts a simple Excel chart that was created about lab values from a table in Word. The video also demonstrates how data can be input directly into Excel. Like all of the samples and examples on LNCtips.com, the names and circumstances are fictitious.
