Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (MOLST)

Medical orders for life-sustaining treatment (MOLST) is a health decision-making process for seriously ill patients that stipulates wishes for life-sustaining treatment based on the patient’s current condition. MOLST ensures that persons with advanced illness will have their decisions regarding life-sustaining treatments known, communicated and honored across all healthcare settings.
