From the MOLST Folks: 2014 Update to Massachusetts Expert Panel on End of Life Care Report

This one in a series of reports on end of life care from UMass. It highlights issues relating to the use of a MOLST, which is a medical form similar to a prescription. It contains instructions from a clinician (physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant) to other heath professionals (e.g., nurses, emergency responders), about what life-sustaining medical treatments use or not use, based on the patient’s own decisions.
