Updated Minnesota POLST Form

Click below to see an updated version of a POLST form being considered by the Minnesota POLST Task Force. This version evolved from Oregon to Wisconsin to Allina. The interdisciplinary, interprofessional, geographically diverse Task Force then reviewed the latest Allina tool (with leaders from Allina) to improve clarity and generalizability. Further discussion is required on the issue of artificial hydration and nutrition and on the instructions on the back side. A follow-up meeting will be held May 20th. If you are not on our invite list (were notified of the first meeting in March) and would like to attend, contact Karolyn Stirewalt [KStirewalt@mnmed.org] at the Minnesota Medical Association.

Please post comments and suggestions regarding this version. See tab at bottom of page to move to page 2.
