Hospice care refers to end of life care in which the goal is comfort, symptom management, and quality of life, as opposed to curative care. It is a coordinated approach provided by an interdisciplinary care team.

Hospice recognizes dying as a part of the normal process of living and focuses on maintaining the remaining quality of life.
