Abstract

As remarkable advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of neurological illness continue to revolutionize our field, we will also face an increasing need to support and guide patients and families through complex choices involving immense uncertainty and intensely important outcomes of mind, body and spirit. To improve the lives for all patients with neurological illness and their families will require a broad range of clinical, educational and investigative efforts in this nascent field of neuropalliative care.
