Resources for Patients
Professional and consistent supportI collaborated with Karger on the development of the two Fast Facts books ‘EGFR exon 20 insertion mutations in NSCLC’ and the ‘Molecular profiling in solid tumors’, to cover the lack of comprehensive books for students on molecular testing in cancer patients and fill the knowledge gap in this field.
I highly recommend working with Karger because of their professionalism and consistency. In a very brief time, Karger put me in contact with other colleagues, and both publications had a great resonance in the scientific community.

Timeliness and attention to detailI 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.

Reaching HCPs and patients worldwideHaving 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.
