This chapter focuses on issues related to the assessment and management of common non-pain symptoms in children and adolescents with complex medical conditions in the advanced and terminal stages. Suffering from uncontrolled symptoms can be prevented by knowledge of the child‘s underlying disease process, thorough assessment of the child and family for sources of suffering, advocacy for child and family needs, and the use of an interdisciplinary approach to management that includes appropriate pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions.
