Palliative Care Formulary 6th Edition PDF Free Download

The book Palliative Care Formulary is written by Robert Twycross, Andrew Wilcock, and Paul Howard. PCF’s target audience includes physicians, nurses, and pharmacists involved in the care of patients receiving hospice/palliative care. PCF is a basic textbook for registrars of palliative medicine in the UK. It is used in some areas to meet the NHS National Cancer Standards requirement for specialist palliative care services within a Cancer Center and Network to have a basic palliative care drug formulary and is mentioned in many official documents of health care, e.g. NICE CKS guidelines.

The production of a book of this nature depends on the help and advice of numerous colleagues, both past and present. We gratefully acknowledge the support of clinical colleagues and members of the community who have provided feedback, particularly through surveys, contributing to the syringe driver survey database, or posting on the bulletin board.

Overview of Palliative Care Formulary

Although written primarily with cancer patients in mind, PCF6 contains specific material related to other life-limiting diseases, for example, COPD, congestive heart failure, renal failure, and Parkinson’s disease. PCF also includes a series of rapid clinical guides. This comprehensive title includes stand-alone information on drugs used in palliative care, highlights off-label indications or routes, and discusses the administration of multiple drugs by continuous subcutaneous infusion.
