Palliative Handbook Medicine 3rd Edn
Ian N Back
Year: August 2001, Pages. 295, 

Many drugs are used in palliative care outside their licensed use at the doctor's discretion. Details of these, together with 'typical' doses and maximum doses are included as an aide-memoir. However, the inclusion of a drug or treatment in this handbook does not dissolve the doctor of their personal responsibility in providing treatment that they are confident with, and can justify, and that is tailored to the individual patient's circumstances. The extensive references aim to help the prescriber to know the evidence supporting its use.
