What is the difference between Hospice and Palliative care?

Hospice and palliative care both focus on comfort, though there are some differences.

Hospice care is typically provided to a patient who is no longer pursuing a cure for a terminal illness or condition.

Palliative care is usually provided to patients and their caregivers while hope for improvement or remission remains. A patient receiving palliative care may or may not continue treatment aimed at a cure.
