The sixth edition of our flagship publication (Palliative Care Formulary) was published in September 2017.

Since the publication of PCF5 in 2014, every drug monograph has been reviewed and 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.
