Many of these patients can benefit from palliative care - a specialty dedicated to managing the pain and symptoms of serious illness. We spoke with Donna Pomaville, the director of Palliative Services at Hospice of Michigan. She explained the similarities and differences between Palliative Care and Hospice care.
