Please notice June has 5 Thursdays and we meet on the last Thursday of the month

We are very pleased to announce that our Hawaiʻi POLST form is getting some improvements.  

With input from local key informants and reviewing the national POLST form and changes made in other states, the Statewide POLST Task Force agreed on some improvements to our Hawaiʻi POLST Form.  

Please join us at the June 29 Kōkua Mau meeting at 3pm to learn about the changes. 


  • Dr. Daniel Fischberg – Improvements to the POLST form 
  • Dr. Libby Char – POLST and First Responders
  • Dr. Sarah Racsa – POLST and out-of-hospital situations
  • Q&A 

The new form will be up on the website by June 29.  

Register in advance for the June monthly meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with details on how to join the zoom meeting.

Remember that current POLST forms are still valid and we encourage you to use the newest version when it is ready.  To read more about POLST visit our website at: kokuamau.org/polst

To help educate the community about these changes, we look to you for help.  We will be uploading the recording of the session to our website, which you can share with colleagues.  If you would like a short article for an in-house newsletter to highlight the changes and the importance of POLST, please let us know.
