POLST Research and Resources

Because the POLST form has been in use for over 15 years and implemented in all states, the body of research and resources related to POLST is also growing. Below, please find links to sources that address the POLST Paradigm (this is the name that the national organization uses inclusive of all POLST programs since some of them have different names such as "COLST, MOST, POST, etc.) and POLST programs in specific states, policy development, education, patient and provider literature, legal concerns and other pertinent information. Please check back often as we will be updating this page as additional information is available.

 

Should you find a helpful resource that you think would be of benefit to others and is not listed below, please send your suggestion to the Nevada POLST.
