The goal of the POLST paradigm is to effectively communicate the wishes of seriously ill patients to have or to limit medical treatment as they move from one care setting to another.
The POLST FORM and brief information on its development and use in Pennsylvania is accessible at the following links.
Users are asked to print copies of the form on pulsar pink card stock (65#). The POLST Wallet Card should be printed on both sides of page.
Inquiries on POLST can be directed to: PAPOLST@verizon.net.
