Dry mouth, hiccups, fevers, pruritus, and sleep disorders are symptoms often found in palliative care patients. They can be challenging to treat and require that the advanced practice registered nurse have a working knowledge in order to effectively manage. Appropriate assessment tools for these common symptoms are reviewed. Pharmacological, non-pharmacological and interventional treatments are offered. All interventions must be individualized to the patient.
