Both palliative medicine and hospice care focus on the larger perspective of a patient’s needs and well-being, rather than high technology interventions as the course of an illness progresses. Care plans are tailored to the patients’ and families’ priorities and values, taking into consideration their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
