This session will review the positive outcomes of an effective advance care planning program across the long-term care continuum that leverages innovative and nationally recognized tools and resources. Participants will be able to employ new practical skills to improve their end-of-life discussions and documentation on Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) orders in the short-term, and apply the multidimensional approach needed to ensure effectiveness and sustainability of a POLST paradigm program in the PA/LTC setting.

Learning Objective(s):

  • Explain the IOM Report recommendations and apply pertinent policy and payment system actions with respect to advance care planning and the POLST Paradigm Program.
  • Demonstrate how eMOLST allows clinicians to follow a standard clinical process for the MOLST discussion, guides them through necessary documentation and ensures availability across care transitions.
  • Illustrate key functionality of the innovative eMOLST application and its current operation in NYS while reviewing customization options for use in any state's POLST/MOLST process.
  • Examine challenges, opportunities and lessons learned with end-of-life discussions, MOLST and eMOLST implementation.
