Hospice and Palliative Medicine
These specialists help keep patients comfortable as they end their lives. They work with patients who are at the end of life. They are experts in managing pain. These specialists work with a team of other doctors to improve your quality of life.
It is too late to help these souls, but if medical situations earlier in life can be detected, the manifestations that put individuals in hospice and palliative care can potentially be prevented years earlier, and the patient could avoid being in this type care or possibly delay it for years or decades!
