National POLST Paradigm Conflict of Interest Policy
This Conflict of Interest (COI) Policy governs the National POLST Paradigm only, not any of the state POLST Programs. The National POLST Paradigm encourages each state POLST Program to have its own COI policy, reflecting their own values and philosophies. If you have any questions, please contact us or the applicable state POLST Program for more information.
