Course Summary

Peace, comfort, and dignity are the ideal outcomes of both palliative and hospice care, but it is important to recognize that the two types of care are very different. Palliative care focuses on providing patients with serious illness an optimal quality of life, and it seeks to alleviate both the physical pain and the emotional stress caused by the illness. Hospice care, on the other hand, is focused on maximizing quality of life for those who are in the final stages of a serious illness. While all hospice care is palliative in nature, palliative care includes both hospice care and care for those who will recover from a serious illness. An in-depth study is provided for novice and experienced practitioners in the health field of palliative and hospice care.
