Palliative Pharmacy Care

Not long ago, palliative care was practiced only in hospice settings. Today, interdisciplinary teams of healthcare professionals provide palliative care to growing numbers of patients in homes, outpatient treatment centers, and hospitals. As a health-system pharmacist and expert in medication use, you can be certain you will be called on more and more frequently to help control symptoms and manage pain for patients who are suffering from a wide variety of terminal and chronic illnesses.

Palliative Pharmacy Care is an important new resource that will help specialists, generalists and students take an informed approach to palliative care and make decisions that will improve therapy, compliance, and outcomes. This is the only text on the subject developed specifically for pharmacists. Edited by Jennifer Strickland, Pharm.D., BCPS, with chapters contributed by noted experts, it offers thorough grounding in the history, principles and practice of palliative care.

Each chapter contains clinical pearls; many also include case studies, key questions, and points for discussion. Sections include:

•The Palliative Care Spectrum: Providing Care Across Settings
•Symptom Assessment and Management
•Pain Assessment and Management
•Communication and Ethical Issues for the Pharmacist
