ADVANCE DIRECTIVES Always… and sometimes POLST! A Panel Discussion

Tuesday, January 22, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Moles Community Room 2465 Lakeway Dr, Bellingham, WA 98229

Do you know?  

            --When and how advance directives help guide your care?

            --When a POLST form might be right for you?

            --How to talk about creating your plan with these documents?  With your family?  With your health care provider?

A POLST form is neither an advance directive nor a replacement for advance directives.

However, both forms are helpful planning documents for communicating patient wishes.

Come join us for an informative discussion about the use of these forms!
