Core Elements of 2018 Oregon POLST Form Promoted for Broad UseThe currently recommended form from the National POLST office incorporates almost all of the elements of the 2018 Oregon POLST form and adds additional search function features of the Oregon 2019 POLST form and includes the use of the word “portable”. We are honored that so many of the form elements that were developed and refined in Oregon are included in the recommended new form being promoted by the National POLST office.

The 2019 Oregon POLST form became effective on January 2, 2019. The Oregon POLST Coalition has asked that all health systems and organizations implement the use of the 2019 form when completing new POLST forms. Please note that all completed earlier versions of POLST forms remain valid.
