Introducing Palliative Care (IPC 6)

Sixth Edition


Introducing Palliative Care is the well-established introductory resource for students and qualified healthcare professionals in the area of palliative care.

The sixth edition has been fully revised in line with current practice. It is split into four parts to cover essential aspects of palliative care and include essential Palliative Care Formulary containing core information about drugs used in palliative care.

New edition updates include:

  • Fully revised in line with current practice and the latest edition of the Palliative Care Formulary (PCF7)
  • Split into 4 parts to cover essential aspects of palliative care
  • Updated essential Palliative Care Formulary containing core information about drugs used in palliative care
  • Ethics chapter includes an expanded section on medically-assisted dying

Although medically oriented, there is much of use to undergraduates and graduates of other disciplines. The clinical focus is on advanced cancer, but the general principles and most of the details are equally applicable to patients dying from other incurable, progressive, life-threatening conditions.
