Michael Douglas and Danny Devito Explain POLST


I hope that videos just like the Michael Douglas / Danny Devito PSA spot for the little-known acronym POLST (Practitioner Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment) become the norm. The spot was directed by Gerry Graf according to AdAge.

While the topic of POLST probably won’t get a ton of coverage in the current climate sexier causes, I applaud Gerry, Michael, and Danny for being great sports and helping the Goals of Care Coalition of New Jersey (GOCCNJ) get the word out on a topic that isn’t top-of-mind, and is however important, particularly in a time of Covid-19 where the family may not be at your side when a healthcare practitioner must be making decisions relating to your health.
