Terminal care: ‘drug control of common symptoms’


The first edition of this pamphlet compiled by Dr. Mary Baines from St. Christopher’s Hospice, London was published in 1981. They now have a much revised third edition (A4, 8 pages). It amplifies the section on terminal care in the British National Formulary (BNF 12, p8) and will especially help doctors with relatively little experience in this field, whether in general practice or in hospital.
