A POST (Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment) form is a physician-signed order form which communicates and puts into action treatment preferences for patients who are nearing the end of their lives. POST is based on the ethical principle of respect and patient autonomy and the legal principle of patient self-determination. All competent adults have the right to make their own healthcare decisions. POST is designed to help healthcare professionals know and honor the treatment wishes of their patients.
