AMDA Approves Measure Supporting POLST

This past week, the American Medical Directors Association’s House of Delegates approved the following measure regarding POLST:

D14: Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatments (POLST): AMDA will promote the POLST paradigm by supporting education about, dissemination and appropriate use of, and resident access to the POLST Paradigm and other advance care planning materials and collaborate with the National POLST Task Force in order to improve advance care planning for the post-acute and long-term care population.

We’re excited to have another partner in the effort to honor patients wishes!
