Palliative Care Formulary (4e)

Dr Michael Minton from UK writes to tell us about the new 4th edition of the Palliative Care Formulary (4e).

Over the last 13 years the Palliative Care Formulary has been the definitive source of reference for the drugs we use in palliative and hospice care, published in the UK and edited by Drs Robert Twycross and Andrew Wilcock.

They and the editorial team have just updated and expanded the formulary, the 4th edition will be available from the 1st October 2011. Press release at, buy online at for a pre-publication 10% discount.

If Pallium India may add:

Even with the pre-publication discount, the price of £45/Rs3,300/$72 is a lot for resource-poor countries.

If any of our well-wishers would like to gift the book to us, it will be more than welcome! 

We shall keep the first copy for the training center at Trivandrum and send any additional copies to other training centers in India that we are associated with.
