PCF6 book now available

21st November 2017

We are delighted to announce that the Palliative Care Formulary 6th edition, PCF6, is now available in print to purchase from our website store for £55 (including p&p in the UK). It contains the latest content of the on-line Palliative Care Formulary as of September 2017. Over these next two weeks, we will be giving priority to processing and dispatching copies to those members who pre-ordered PCF6 during September and October.

Since the publication of PCF5 in 2014, the content has been reviewed and extensively updated. PCF6 has 35 chapters and appendices, an increase of three from PCF5. In Part 1, some drug monographs have been merged and new ones added. Part 2 has been divided into Parts 2 and 3. The new chapters are all in Part 2: Prescribing in children, Renal impairment and Hepatic impairment. Part 3 covers Routes of Administration.

Although written primarily with cancer patients in mind, PCF6 contains specific material relating to several other life-limiting diseases e.g. COPD, congestive heart failure, renal failure, and Parkinson's disease. PCF also includes a number of Quick Clinical Guides

The on-line version of the Palliative Care Formulary is updated continuously and will thus provide access to the most up to date content. Details of on-line subscription including combination packages for purchasing with the print version are available from our store. Further details on bulk purchasing of any format can be obtained by contacting hq@palliativedrugs.com.
