Palliative vs. Hospice Care

 

Palliative care can be a tremendous benefit for individuals with chronic, life-limiting conditions. However, many qualifying individuals are not referred for palliative care because of a lack of understanding about palliative care services, as well as confusion regarding how palliative care and hospice care differ. This course will explain each of these types of care and when each is appropriate, the services offered, the roles of the team members, and the payor sources so that the healthcare professional can better advocate for the most appropriate care and provide education and guidance to individuals and their families, as well as ease the transition from palliative care to hospice care when necessary.
