  • “A Deeper Understanding of Palliative Care” published by Georgetown University.
    This resource provides insights into the specifics of what palliative care entails and its differences from hospice and curative care. Also included is a helpful info-graphic illustrating the differences between the types of health care. I believe this would be a valuable addition to your palliative care resource page.  Below is the URL to the resource, if you'd like to share this with your community:
