As a Pharmacist working in the Hospice setting, one of the biggest question and concern that I get is centered around pain. Am I or is my love one going to be in pain? So, our goal is your comfort and the way that we achieve that is by having a group of people dedicated to that exact same goal.
A big area of confusion is the difference between hospice and palliative care. So palliative care is basically comfort care or symptom management care, and hospice is a specific type of palliative care.
