IPOST: Iowa Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment @ Iowa City Senior Center

An IPOST is a medical order that is printed on a salmon-colored paper and offers choices such as CPR, DNR, level of medical care, feeding tubes, and other decisions that a person might face near the end of life. The IPOST is intended for people who are seriously ill or are frail and elderly. When an eligible individual completes an IPOST with their health care provider, the IPOST form turns the person’s health care choices into medical orders. By attending this workshop, participants will be able to identify the differences between advance directives and IPOST, describe who qualifies for an IPOST, and understand how IPOST can assist in honoring people‚Äôs health care preferences at the end of life.

Fee: none. Registration required.
