    I am a Massachusetts hospice nurse who was recently asked by a hospital physician if I was aware of a new mandate requiring physicians to give an educational document to a patient regarding the difference between hospice and palliative care. I have been looking on the web and can’t find any article that speaks about this. Can anyone address this question for me?
    Thank you
