Michigan Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (MI-POST)
MI-POST is an optional, 1 page, 2-sided medical order with a person's wished for care in a crisis. The intended population is people with serious advanced illness or frailty. MI-POST is a part of the advance care planning process that included choices about cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), critical care, and other wanted care. It is intended to guide care only if the person cannot tell others what to do at that time. MI-POST is signed by the patient/patient representative and their physician, nurse practitioner, or physician's assistant.
