Question:

Inactive
Brittany B.
Answer:

Palliative medicine can be utilized by any patient suffering from a debilitating chronic disease at any point in their life as its focus is on symptom management and helping the patient to live well despite their illness, the treatment for that illness, and the symptoms related to their disease. Hospice is designated for patients whose life expectancy is 6 months or less and is usually initiated when, especially with regard to cancer patients, curative or disease-specific therapy is no longer being pursued.
