HCA Offering Intro to MOLST

The Home Care Alliance is part of a state-run committee charged to provide education and outreach on Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (MOLST) and will be holding a free conference call for members on January 3rd from 1:00-2:00pm.

MOLSTAlliance staff who sit on the MOLST Community Outreach and Education Committee with state officials and other organizations will provide an overview of the standardized form being used to translate a patient’s life-sustaining treatment preferences into a medical order that can be honored across all healthcare settings.

Jeanne Ryan, Alliance Board Member and Executive Director of the VNA & Hospice of Cooley Dickinson, will be on the call to explain how that agency worked with their provider partners to educate their community about MOLST and related issues.

Again, the call is free for HCA members who sign up by contacting James Fuccione at the Alliance.
