Key Differences between Palliative Care:

  • Palliative Care may begin at diagnosis, throughout their disease trajectory and may be provided concurrently with treatment for their disease.
  • Palliative Care is based on need, not prognosis
  • Hospice care is reserved for those with an anticipated lifespan of 6 months or less.
  • Hospice begins after discontinuation of curative treatment for the disease and when it is anticipated the patient will not survive their illness.
