Ease Patients into End-of-Life Decisions with Free ISMS Resource
Posted on: 11/1/2013

PersonalDecisionBecause discussing end-of-life decisions with patients is a necessary part of medical care, ISMS has published A Personal Decision, a booklet providing practical information and guidance on determining advance directives, including:

  • A Living Will Form
  • Do-Not-Resuscitate Order - aka POLST
  • IL Power of Attorney for Health Care Official Statutory Form
  • IL Official Statutory Declaration for Mental Health Treatment
  • An Organ Donor Card

The booklet has also been recently updated to include the Illinois Department of Public Health Uniform DNR Advance Directive, better known as Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST). This form is a signed medical order that travels with the patient to assure their treatment preferences are honored across settings of care.

Value-added benefit for your practice

Physicians, patients and staff can download A Personal Decision for free.

ISMS members may also receive up to 300 free print copies of the booklet, per year, to distribute to patients. (If non-members were to purchase 300 copies, it would cost $225!)

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to serve your patients. To order your copies, please contact the ISMS Purchasing Department at 800-782-4767 or send an email.
