Maryland Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (MOLST):
A Six Month Check-Up 


The Maryland MOLST form, which went into effect statewide on July 1, 2013, is an order form to communicate patients’ end-of-life treatment preferences to health care providers across healthcare settings. This program will examine how MOLST has been implemented in its first six months by identifying and discussing best practices as well as barriers to implementing it successfully. Attendees will work together to identify strategies to improve end-of-life care in Maryland, with a focus on MOLST orders, advance directives, medically ineffective treatment, and end-of-life communication.

Attendees should have already attended a MOLST workshop or viewed the open-access MOLST workshop that is available on UM Carey Law's website.

Upon completion of this course, participants will have a better understanding of how to effectively implement MOLST orders to improve end-of-life care for their patients.  


Objectives:
1. Identify best practices for how MOLST has been implemented in Maryland since July 1, 2013.

2. Discuss strategies to improve how MOLST orders and advance directives are completed and interpreted by clinicians to improve end-of-life care in Maryland.

3. Recognize effective communication skills surrounding identifying individuals’ end-of-life treatment preferences and documenting these in an advance directive and a MOLST form.

4. Explore how Maryland’s Health Care Decision’s Act impacts how MOLST orders are completed and interpreted as regards to medically ineffective treatment.
