    While palliative care has adopted a holistic approach to treatment, medication driven symptom management ostensibly forms the critical aspect of care. Pharmacological therapy can be extremely complex because these patients often have coexisting medical conditions in addition to symptoms causedby their terminal disease. The resulting polypharmacy can be daunting for professionals and can negatively impact on effectiveness of care.Fully revised and updated, the second edition of Drugs in Palliative Care is a detailed yet concise handbook that will appeal to a variety of healthcare professionals involved in the provision of palliative care and medicines information. Divided into three sections it begins with an overview ofpharmacology and prescribing advice then contains over 160 monographs of palliative care drugs, in an easy to use A-Z format.
