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!
