National POLST Conflict of Interest Policy
National POLST has established a well defined Conflict of Interest (COI) Policy. This COI Policy governs National POLST only, not any of the state POLST Programs. National POLST 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.
