What is POLST?
In 2014 POLST (Provider Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment) legislation was passed giving signing privileges to APRNs and Physicians for a POLST. The Kokua Mau website is the central source for POLST information for Hawai‘i.

POLST is a portable medical order that gives patients more control over their end-of-life care.  It specifies the types of treatments that a patient wishes to receive towards the end of life. Completing a POLST form encourages communication between healthcare providers and patients, enabling patients to make more informed decisions. POLST form documents those decisions in a clear manner and can be quickly understood by all providers, including first responders and emergency medical services (EMS) personnel. As a result, the patient’s wishes can be honored across all settings of care.

You can download the (new) POLST form and POLST information for providers and consumers.
