Riverton Rehabilitation & Healthcare, Lehigh Valley Health Network Partner to Host Educational Event in Allentown
ALLENTOWN, Pa. (June 27, 2023) — Regional healthcare professionals are invited to an education program, “Understanding Pennsylvania Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST),” on Wednesday, July 12. Co-hosted by Riverton Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center and Lehigh Valley Health Network, the lunch-and-learn will begin at noon at Riverton, 803 N Wahneta Street in Allentown.
POLST is a form that specifies the type of medical treatment a patient wishes to receive towards the end of their life. The form travels with patients and is honored across hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living communities. The Understanding POLST program will cover a range of topics, including who the POLST form is for; what is in the form and how to complete it; and whether a patient can review, revise or revoke a POLST.
To RSVP, please contact Katie Long at 610-782-8300 or email@example.com.
