Our First eBook

Dr Liz Walder | 6 November 2014

As someone who believes passionately in making science and health information accessible to everybody, when I was asked to write an e-book for patients, I grasped the opportunity to be an author with hands, head and heart. 

Realising there was a distinct lack of patient books written in plain English or in a language which everyone could understand (from your Grandma to your neighbour’s teenage son), we decided to develop our own series of e-books. We wanted to create something patients could rely on to tell them the truth about their condition, but more importantly didn’t scare them in the process with lots of gooblygook and jargon.

Our first outing in the world of e-books is a book for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Rheumatoid arthritis can be a very debilitating and complex condition and from our research there appeared to be very few e-books written for patients.

Formatting e-books is a bit of a nightmare and after a bit of a battle (Em we love you) we have got there and I am excited to introduce Cuttsy and Cuttsy’s first e-book!

“Rheumatoid arthritis…in plain English”

Written with patients and family members in mind, it provides information on things like why RA develops, how it is diagnosed, details on pain relief and other RA treatments and how to manage RA on a day to day basis.

I hope that by removing all the complicated terminology, our e-book is a useful guide for anyone who has a family member or close friend with RA to help them understand what life is really like for people with the condition.

If you would like to purchase a full copy, it is available from Amazon.

I hope you like it.

PS. Please stay tuned for the next in the series.
