Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST)
POLST is a physician order recognized throughout the medical system (in
California only). It allows individuals to choose medical treatments they
want to receive and identify those they do not want. Use of this form
is not mandated but honoring the form is mandated. The POLST complements
the Advance Health Care Directive.
