Palliative Care in Neurology Neurology as a discipline clearly overlaps with palliative care. Nevertheless, an early integration of palliative care accompanying neurological treatment rarely takes place, and there are still misunderstandings with regard to the timing of the inclusion of palliative care and its role beyond pure end-of-life care and hospice care. A further expansion and use of synergies should become an integral part of both disciplines in the coming years, and training should focus on appropriate training, especially for our young medical colleagues.
