INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE INC
June 30, 2010

I was invited by IAHPC to participate in a process to develop a list of Essential Medicines in Palliative Care. The resulting list includes all those medications that are needed to treat the most common symptoms in patients with life limiting conditions and diseases. I was able to participate in an online survey and then in a face to face meeting organized by IAHPC where the List of Essential Medicines was finalized and approved. This list has served me and my country well: it was used as the model to develop the medicines policies for the national palliative care program.
