The Georgia POLST Collaborative is part of the National POLST Paradigm and aims to educate patients, families and health care professionals throughout the state about the Georgia POLST.
Physicians Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) is a medical order that enables seriously ill patients to designate the treatments they want and to ensure that those preferences are honored by medical professionals. A POLST form is completed by your doctor to activate the wishes you have documented in your Georgia Advance Directive for Health Care and/or expressed to him/her.
Georgia Health Decisions is a member of the Georgia POLST Collaborative which aims to educate patients, families, and health care professionals throughout the state about advance care planning. To learn more about the Georgia POLST Collaborate and use of the POLST form, click on the icon below.
