Pennsylvania Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) and Advanced Directive (Living Will and health care Power of Attorney) information is available at our health care facilities, including UPMC hospitals and primary care practices in Central Pa. Advanced care planning is essential to making sure your wishes are known to your health care providers as well as your loved ones.
The POLST is a physician order designating your treatment wishes for end-of-life care across treatment settings. An Advanced Directive is important for all adults who wish to communicate their future wishes for end-of-life care.
Contact your primary care physician to discuss the POLST or an Advanced Directive. Or visit UPMC's main patient info section to learn more about advance care planning.
