Find a Hospice and Palliative Medicine Specialist

Hospice and palliative medicine is a subspecialty of internal, family, emergency medicine, and anesthesiology. Practitioners concern themselves with symptom management, pain and suffering control, and end-of-life care for patients with life-limiting, life threating, or terminal illnesses. In addition to caring for patients, they are extensively trained in addressing the needs of the patients' families to ensure the best possible experience in a difficult time.
