Palliative and EOL Care: What's the Difference?
Some clinicians mistakenly confuse the distinction between:
- Palliative care that can be delivered along the entire continuum of illness at any point during the disease spectrum and is oriented toward quality of life for people with serious illnesses
- Hospice care which is a palliative care model specifically for delivering care to people in their last months of life
Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life for patients and their families facing serious and/or life-threatening illness.
