The Provider Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) requires a conversation between a patient and their medical provider to determine what level of medical treatment, based on the patient's values, goals, and medical issues, the patient wants towards the end of life. This information is then used to complete the POLST form, which is both an actionable medical order and a legal document to be honored in all settings.

Nevada POLST has been adopted in most all healthcare facilities throughout Nevada.
