Palliative medicine resources

Here you can download supplementary patient information leaflets for drugs commonly used in palliative care outside their licensed use. These leaflets must be provided in addition to the licensed patient information leaflet, as this is a legal requirement.

These leaflets describe the purpose and uses of the drug within end of life care and answer some frequently asked questions.
