Hospice and Palliative Medicine

Hospice and palliative care is applied when a patient is at the last days of their life. Palliative medicine helps in pain management while hospice provides special care to improve the quality of life for both the patient and their family. Instead of spending the last moments in impersonal environment, the patient can choose to stay in their own house along with their loved ones with support from the hospice staffs. Hospice care is given to patients whose life expectancy is less than six months and provides support to the patient and their family while stopping the usage of external medications. In palliative care, the patient is given palliative care medications to relief the symptoms and ailments and it can be started from the beginning and used along with external medications.
