Palliative Care vs. Hospice: Tell Me the Difference Again?

Monday, June 5
5:30-7:00 p.m.

Libby Hagman RN, BSN, Mission Hospice & Home Care

Libby Hagman will talk about the differences and the overlaps between Palliative Care and Hospice. It’s common for these two philosophies and models of care to be unclear in people’s minds, and for good reason; all hospice care is palliative, but not all palliative care is hospice. This event is open to the public–patients, friends, caregivers–anyone who wants to learn more about palliative care and hospice.

Martha Kay (MK) Nelson, Director of Spiritual Care, Mission Hospice & Home Care

Martha Kay (MK) Nelson, Director of Spiritual Care at Mission Hospice, will lead a discussion on the recent law passed in California, which gives adults with a 6-month terminal diagnosis the right to pursue a doctor’s prescription for medication to peacefully end their life. MK will outline the basic tenets of the law, then facilitate a group conversation where questions and thoughts from all perspectives are welcome and encouraged.
