The seventh edition of the Palliative Care Formulary (PCF), a Pharmaceutical Press product from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, is an essential resource for healthcare professionals who care for patients with progressive end-stage disease.

Although written primarily with cancer patients in mind, PCF7 contains specific material relating to several other life-limiting diseases e.g. COPD, congestive heart failure, renal and hepatic failure, and Parkinson's disease.

PCF7 also includes several Quick Clinical Guides covering key topics in palliative care and designed for everyday use. Grounded in clinical practice, this comprehensive title includes independent information about drugs used in palliative care, highlighting off-label indications or routes, and dealing with the administration of multiple drugs by continuous subcutaneous infusion.
