    Timeliness and attention to detail
    I collaborated with Karger on an electronic publication and course: ‘Fast Facts — Ulcerative colitis’.
    The book is available worldwide and I expect it to be an invaluable resource to general gastroenterologists, fellows in gastrointestinal training, and allied healthcare professionals looking after people with ulcerative colitis.
    Working with Karger, especially with Dr. Mathisen, a medical writer, has been a pleasure and a privilege. The professionalism, timeliness, and attention to detail have been exemplary.

    Open to developing new ideas
    Karger helped us develop a patient information booklet on menopause and an eLearning package for general practitioners, “Managing the Menopause in Primary Care”, which is a helpful quick-update resource about menopause management. The development of the resource was supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Theramex, and the materials are available through various outlets (Karger Courses, Theramex menopause hub, Amazon).
    We had a very supportive working relationship with the Karger team. They were responsive, accessible, and open to developing new ideas. The help of a medical writer made it a lot easier for me to write an understandable patient information booklet, as I am used to writing information for other medical professionals. The Karger team also hosted interactions with the patient focus group who provided their advice. I am particularly satisfied with the layout of the booklet and the tear-off pages. This format provides the right information to women in a way that is useful and that they enjoy.

    Reaching HCPs and patients worldwide
    Having an opportunity to be a co-author on a book for adults with epilepsy was an exciting way for me and my colleagues to showcase our work and use the epilepsy knowledge we have developed over the years to educate patients and other healthcare professionals, not just locally but throughout the UK and worldwide. I was delighted to be a part of this project.
    The editorial process has been extremely pleasurable, and the Karger team was very helpful; they listened to us as to what would be invaluable as content rather than dictating what should be in a book, gave us a specific plan, and supported us with direct feedback.
    The book has been well received in countries around the world, translated into different languages and supported by professional organizations. We hope that it will help healthcare professionals in other regions to develop their epilepsy care. Through our collaboration with Karger, even patients and their families will be able to access the information in a language that can be understood by all.
