    In the US, hospice care is end of life only, which is different to here. Several members might have been tempted by a webinar on hospices and I know that's not what they would have expected as a focus - fair warning.

    I didn't refer to palliative care.

    US Hospice can be in-home or at a Hospice staffed by medical professionals. Palliative care is an interdisciplinary medical caregiving approach aimed at optimizing the quality of life and mitigating suffering among people with serious, complex illnesses. I think it covers much more than end-of-life issues, but I need to go there to be sure.

    As a general FYI to forum members: the term "hospice care" in the US purely means end of life care, generally in the person's home, is rarely a physical building and isn't the same as the hospice movement that we're used to on these islands, so expect much discussion on end of life.
