Patients and families facing end-of-life decisions now have more control and peace of mind with a new law commonly known as MOLST, or Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment. MOLST is intended to ensure that a person's wishes are followed wherever one is cared for. We'll examine what you need to know about MOLST, from who should have one to how it differs from other advance directives.
