Many diseases are accompanied by neurological sequelae. Palliative care nurses must arm themselves with knowledge of common neurological symptoms in order to properly assess the patient, advise the patient and family/caregivers, and address these symptoms. Additionally, neurological diseases are common and may come with a heavy symptom burden. As evidence evolves, so must our clinical practice. This chapter will introduce the palliative care nurse to several neurological diseases requiring intervention for symptoms palliation. Additionally, this chapter will suggest appropriate, evidence-based interventions for broad symptom categories for treating the patient with a variety of neurological disturbances.
