Abstract:  One of the most distressing conditions that can affect a hospice patient is nausea. The author covers the pathways leading to emesis and gastric motility and provides a chart listing medications and their sites of action. She concludes that the pharmacist’s knowledge of medications, their mechanism of action and pathways and limitations and combinations that enhance efficacy is crucial to the success of a medication protocol.
