IPost Form and Guidance

The Iowa Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment, known as IPOST, is a double-sided, one-page document that allows a person to communicate their preferences for key life-sustaining treatments including:  resuscitation, general scope of treatment, artificial nutrition, and more.  IPOST is appropriate for an individual who is frail elderly, or who has a chronic, critical medical condition or terminal illness.

In the last stages of illness, health decisions can be complicated and difficult for the patient, their families, and even the treating health providers.  IPOST helps health providers guide and support the patient and their families during this sensitive time.  A completed IPOST creates a clear declaration of the patient's healthcare treatment choices and assures that the patient's wishes are fulfilled at the prescribed time.
