Designed to improve the quality of care people receive at the end-of-life, the Oregon Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) Program is based on effective communication of patient wishes, documentation of medical orders on a brightly colored form and promise by a health care professional to honor these wishes.
