Earlier today, Indiana’s Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (POST) legislation was signed by Governor Mike Pence. The legislation allows the use of the POST form in Indiana to document and honor patients’ wishes at the end of life. The legislation will go into effect on July 1st, 2013.
We congratulate the Indiana Patient Preferences Coalition (IPPC), whose members have worked tirelessly to establish POST in Indiana, and others who supported this legislation. It will help ensure that Hoosiers with advanced illness and frailty will have their treatment wishes honored.
