The Maryland MOLST form, which went into effect statewide on July 1, 2013, is an order form to communicate patients’ end-of-life treatment preferences to health care providers across healthcare settings. This program will examine how MOLST has been implemented in its first six months by identifying and discussing best practices as well as barriers to implementing it successfully.
Attendees will work together to identify strategies to improve end-of-life care in Maryland, with a focus on MOLST orders, advance directives, medically ineffective treatment, and end-of-life communication. Attendees should have already attended a MOLST workshop or viewed the open-access MOLST workshop that is available on the MHECN website (click on Conferences).
Upon completion of this course, participants will have a better understanding of how to effectively implement MOLST orders to improve end-of-life care for their patients.
This activity has been submitted to the Maryland Nurses Association for approval to award contact hours. The Maryland Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
This event is co-sponsored by the National Association of Social Workers - Maryland Chapter to provide 6.0 Continuing Education Credits for social workers.
This activity has been submitted for 6.25 CMEs for physicians.
