Comments Sought on Michigan Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment Final Draft

Posted on February 11, 2019

In 2017, the MHA supported legislation regarding the Michigan Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (MI-POST) that became Public Act 154 of 2017. A POST form is a physician’s order that allows patients to provide information explaining their wishes for end-of-life healthcare based on their own experiences, values and goals. The final draft of the MI-POST form has been released, and the MHA encourages members to comment on the form and accompanying materials by April 8.

The MHA Keystone Center, Michigan hospitals and other interested organizations were part of the POST workgroup led by the Honoring Healthcare Choices – Michigan organization, which was charged with assisting in the creation of MI-POST legislation. The MHA and its member hospitals have a history of supporting initiatives that honor patient care preferences, and the association advocated for the legislation to add POST to the Public Health Code. Members with questions should contact Paige Fults at the MHA.
