Compounding for Palliative Care

Palliative care is treatment provided to patients who have chronic disease (such as COPD) or terminal illness (such as cancer) and is intended to improve the patient's quality of life, but not cure the disease. This treatment is best provided by a team of specialists that may include doctors, nurses, social workers, clergy, nutritionists and pharmacists. As a compounding pharmacy, we have resources not available at traditional pharmacies, so we’re not limited to a one-size-fits-all solution. It is important to customize treatment for each patient since diseases vary and patient responses to treatment vary as well. Palliative care aims to relieve and manage symptoms such as nausea & vomiting, pain, dry mouth & stomatitis, wound care, fatigue, loss of appetite, radiation mucositis, constipation and shortness of breath without causing unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, GI upset and constipation. Ask our pharmacist how we can help.
