The palliative care nurse is likely to encounter a patient with advanced neurological disorder or with a medical condition with neurological complications. It behooves the palliative care nurse to prepare for the variety of symptoms and diagnoses that he or she will clinically encounter. This chapter aims to lead the palliative care nurse to the appropriate, evidence-based interventions for the patient with neurological disturbances. It addresses broad symptom categories as well as common neurological diseases with heavy symptom burden deserving of special attention.
