2.5 CE Credit for EMS Personnel


MOLST, Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment, is a powerful tool for frail and seriously ill adults to make informed end of life care choices, record their choices, and be assured their choices will be honored at home, on transfer, and across all care settings.

Our challenge is to build a collaborative MOLST process that is responsive to an adult’s changing health needs and that honors care choices through their health journey and at the end of life.

Come join us for a dynamic panel discussion of community leaders. Health care providers, community professionals, EMS, clergy, attorneys — all professionals working with adults with chronic and serious illness are welcome to attend.

Engage in Round Table Discussions: Let's Build a MOLST Process Together!

Following the panel, share your expertise with a diverse cross-section of care & community professionals and suggest ways to improve the MOLST form; work with colleagues to ‘build your team’ to engage adults & families in discussions; and align protocols & policy measures to consistently provide quality person-centered care. Together we’ll generate guiding principles and next steps to craft a responsive process for all MA adults.

What You'll Learn:

- Fact vs Myth: MA law & state regulations

- The MOLST Form: Understanding choices, making it valid!

- Build a Team: The role & decision-making authority of physicians, care professionals, Health Care Agents, Guardians

- Tools for effective, culturally sensitive planning discussions

- Strategies to align our protocols to know and honor consumer choices, across all settings
