"Advance care planning can happen at any time along a patient’s journey. These discussions should include sharing information about how to reduce pain, discomfort and stress when receiving care for a serious, life-limiting condition.
Many patients do not understand how palliative and/or hospice care may help; in fact, they may not have even heard of palliative care. It can be easy to confuse these two types of comfort care. It is important for clinicians to be well-versed in the similarities and differences, so they can better inform patients about their options."
That's all for now! Take care and stay tuned for next month's updates.
