We support our customers to articulate science to non-scientific audiences in various formats through various channels.
Complex Science Made Simple
Research does not stop in the lab, nor does its impact stop at publication.
Increasingly, institutions, healthcare organizations, and clinical researchers need to connect with broader audiences–students, patients, clinicians and so on–to expand their work's application and reach. Karger is paving the way by making medical research commonly understandable, visible, and presentable.
Unlike traditional publishers, we go the extra mile to help our customers explain and articulate science to non-scientific audiences using a variety of methods.

They include two healthcare blogs, Embarrassing Problems and The Waiting Room, a series of podcasts, free healthcare e-learning courses, webinars, and more.CliniciansPatients

Enhancing HCP-Patient communicationWriting a Fast Facts book about asthma for patients and their supporters was a valuable opportunity to develop my skills, as I am used to writing journal articles for clinical audiences. Karger provided me with examples and ideas, and writing was easy with their support. This experience enhanced my communication skills – I learned how to summarize medical information in an easily understandable way and how to develop professional infographics. The more health professionals learn to write such simple and accessible patient information, the better. It takes a bit of skill to do it, but I think it's worth it for clinicians across all specialties to get this experience.

Optimal information balance for professionals and lay audiencesKarger was the only publisher that truly understood what my message was meant to be, and that made the process enjoyable for me. I felt comfortable and heard, communication was excellent, and the whole process was fair and transparent. A book aimed at both specialists and interested laypeople is a tightrope-walk that is not always easy. This was what made the project exciting, but also difficult. The feedback showed us that we found a way to combine both aspects in one book. We received invitations to speak about this issue in various magazines, to write journal articles and publish podcasts.
