End-of-Life: Another Form!

In the July 18, 2010 New Old Age Blog Paula Span reports on yet another form we need to fill out if we want the most control at the end of our lives. Her article, A Final Prescription describes the POLST form, though the name may be different from state-to-state.  A individual completes this form with specific instructions about what should and should not be done as death approaches. I’ve searched my state website, that’s Virginia, but it doesn’t have a form at this time.

A POLST site at Oregon Health Sciences University, features an interactive map.  Click on your state to find our what what it is doing about POLST.
