Having compassion and understanding for people's wishes is a cornerstone of patient care.  In order to respect people's final wishes, EMS needs to know the processes in place and what documentation to look for.  In this course we will explore Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders, Practitioner's Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLSTs) and Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD).  We will also review some of the paperwork from nearby states that NJ EMS may encounter.  Knowing what to look for and what to expect can make these challenging situations easier for EMS providers, patients and their families.
