Purpose

The IPOST form is a dynamic and actionable provider order form used in Iowa for over a decade. It is part of the national POLST movement, pushing to drive critical conversations through shared decision-making and capture them in a provider order that is transportable and actionable toward the patient's spoken goals and wishes. Understanding how to utilize the form is paramount to helping defragment a health system often riddled with communication challenges between providers.

Learning Objective

  1. Review the POLST paradigm movement and Iowa’s IPOST.
  2. Discuss the power of the IPOST conversation.
  3. Use the AsK, Teach, Ask model to have difficult conversations.
  4. Identify common pitfalls in difficult conversations.
  5. Identify common pitfalls with the IPOST form.
  6. Learn strategic language for navigating critical conversations.
