Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) is a form that gives seriously-ill patients more control over their end-of-life care, including medical treatment, extraordinary measures (such as a ventilator or feeding tube) and CPR. The Coalition for Compassionate Care of California has created and compiled a variety of resources to help educate patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals on the issues – both medical and deeply personal – surrounding POLST.
