POLST: Enhancing End-of-Life Care (The Most Important Conversation of All)
United Way of Northern New Jersey Caregivers Coalition invites you to attend this free Munch & Learn presentation. Physician's Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) had been signed into legislation in 2011. However, many patients and family members are just starting to hear the term and want to know more. Come learn about POLST and how it is used to enhance your loved one’s wishes for end-of-life care.
Presented by Jon Sugarman, DNP, MSN, APRN, ANP-BC, GNP-C, PMHNP-BC, CDP, an advance practice nurse focused on geriatrics and psychiatry/mental health. Jon works at Morristown Medical Center in the Emergency Department and is part of the Atlantic Health System initiative to promote the use of POLST forms in the hospital and the communities it serves.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
