The Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) is an evidence-based process that allows people with a life-limiting illness or advanced frailty to talk with health care providers about their treatment choices so that their wishes can be translated into actionable medical orders.
Join Elizabeth Hart, MD, co-founder of the Maine POLST Coalition, to explore the POLST Paradigm, investigate how providers in Maine are incorporating it into their practices and consider its effectiveness in your practice setting. This webinar is appropriate for those considering the use of POLST and those who are already using POLST but haven't had extensive training in the model.
