POLST Training Tools
A demonstration of the POLST conversation between a physician and patient to learn how physicians elicit detailed answers from patients about their end-of-life treatment choices for recording on the POLST form. This conversation is the key to making the POLST (Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatments) program work for patients and their healthcare providers. Developed by Coalition for Compassionate Care of California.
The True/False POLST training test is helpful to give attendees to identify if any items need to be re-addressed after the presentation has been completed. It helps to confirms that the information has been captured accurately.
The vignettes are helpful for training attendees to incorporate POLST into real life scenarios, and to ensure understanding of the materials.
