This program will explain the difference between advance directives and medical orders for life sustaining treatment (MOLST) including the appropriate populations for each. Topics will include a discussion of national trends, alignment with New York's approach to advance care planning, New York's MOLST and changes in the state's Public Health Law. The speakers will describe the eight step MOLST protocol (including the communication process, the ethical framework and shared, informed medical decision making for end-of-life discussions). Further discussion will involve review of case histories and an examination of the failures in following MOLST orders which have led to recommendations for improvement, including eMOLST, showing how the program improves patient safety and ensures accessibility. The program will conclude with a review of the key elements of the proposed New York eMOLST registry introduced by Assemblyman Joseph Morelle and Senator Rich Funke.
