What is a POLST form?

A POLST (Physician Order for Life Sustaining Treatment) form specifies a person’s wishes about certain medical treatments they want towards the end of life. The POLST form is designed to ensure that seriously ill patients can decide with their physician, Advance Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), or Physician’s Assistant (PA), what treatments are most appropriate. POLST forms are available from doctors, hospitals, and hospices.
