The form below is a Physician Order for Life Sustaining Treatment. It is based upon the form used in Oregon. It has been field tested in Cambridge Minnesota. We are seeking feedback from interested parties. Feedback received by January 15, 2009 will be used to update this form. It will then be reviewed and (hopefully) endorsed by organizations such as the Minnesota Emergency Medical Services Board, the Minnesota Medical Association, Hospice Minnesota, the Minnesota Medical Directors Association and the Minnesota Leadership Council on Aging.
