The Massachusetts MOLST project is a collaboration of the:
•
Massachusetts Department of Public Health
•
Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs and
•
Commonwealth Medicine at UMass Medical School
2
Objectives
• Describe MOLST and its place along the advance care planning
continuum
• Name steps involved in MA MOLST implementation in health
care facilities
• List resources for learning more about Medical Orders for LifeSustaining Treatment
3
MOLST is…
 A standardized hot pink-colored form* that contains a patient’s
preferences about life-sustaining medical treatments.
 Valid medical orders that can be honored across all health care settings.
 A clinical standard of practice for documenting and communicating
patient preferences about life-sustaining medical treatments.
 A dynamic form, meant to be updated along with changes in a patient’s
health status or treatment preferences.
* Original MOLST forms are created on hot pink-colored paper to maximize visibility
and portability. Electronic, faxed and non-pink forms are also valid.

MOLST Takeaway Messages
• MOLST is not an advance directive.
• MOLST is a medical form containing medical orders created by
clinicians, based on a patient’s current health condition and effective
immediately when signed.
• All adults aged 18 and older should still complete a health care proxy
form to appoint a health care agent to make decisions for them in
the event of loss of capacity.
