In order to provide optimal hospice care, a nurse must have the tools necessary to choose the right medication for his or her patient.

The hospice formulary was designed to allow flexibility in prescribing, while providing safeguards against inappropriate therapies. Using a disease-specific formulary, nurses are given access to a wide range of hospice medications, enabling them to choose the most cost-effective medication for the patient’s care.
