Abstract

Palliative care for children is complex and focuses on patients' comfort. Some of the most troublesome symptoms as patients approach the end of life are seizures, agitation, and spasticity. Many doctors caring for children at the end of life are uncomfortable or untrained in managing these symptoms in children. Our goal is to help physicians recognize and treat these neurologic symptoms optimally.
