Coalition Creates More User Friendly Advance Directives Form

    The Coalition created a new, user-friendly advance directive form. It     allows users to designate a health care agent. When individuals     cannot make their own medical decisions, the health care agent is the     person who makes these decisions. Please refer to Forms page to     access this form in English and other languages. 

Coalition advocates for passage and implementation of medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (MOLST) in Maryland 

    MOLST  forms are medical orders for treatment that are transferal     across treatment settings. Research shows that using such forms     increases the likelihood that patients receive the care they would     choose for themselves.
