The first hour session will cover concepts related to trajectories of functional decline in serious illness and at end of life. An understanding of these trajectories informs communication between patients, families, and medical providers and frames the need for effective advance care planning. The second hour of discussion will introduce Transportable Physician's Orders for Patient Preferences, a program created to promote the translation of patients' care preferences into actionable physicians' orders which move with the patient across the continuum of medical care. As a POLST paradigm, the T-POPP program joins multiple other state efforts nationwide to improve advanced care planning and communication of orders and goals for treatment across the continuum of care. T-POPP is presently piloting in Topeka, Kansas, with the goal to spread statewide in Kansas and Missouri.
