Michigan Physician Order for Scope of Treatment (MI POST)

The MI-POST is intended for adult patients who have advanced frailty or serious illness resulting in a shortened life expectancy of a year or less. It is an optional, two-page, two-sided out of hospital medical order that is part of the advance care planning process that directs what care the patient should receive if they require medical attention.  The MI-POST is executed by the patient’s attending physician, nurse practitioner, or physician's assistant in collaboration with the patient (or the patient’s Patient Advocate/Guardian when applicable).
