The Center for Health Ethics and Law is the distribution point for the Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (POST) form. This document is designed to help health care professionals know and honor the treatment wishes of their patients. It puts the advance directive into action by translating the patient’s treatment wishes into a medical order, centralizing information, facilitating record keeping, and ensuring transfer of appropriate information among health care professionals and across care settings. If you are a health care professional or represent a health care institution (hospital, nursing home, hospice, or home health care agency) and wish to receive these forms or additional information, please call (877) 209-8086, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or order online at www.wvendoflife.org under the Health Care Providers tab.
