All documents (PDF files) are in Chinese Simplified only and are intended for educational purposes to facilitate the discussion of the topics with Hawaii residents with limited English proficiency. The Hawaii Advance Directive is the only exception, with a bilingual layout block by block.
POLST for Hawaii
***The Hawaiʻi POLST form was updated in May 2023. We encourage everyone to use the updated version of POLST. If you have the pre-May 2023 version, it remains valid and does not expire.

The Conversation Project – Starter Kit
The Conversation Project isn’t about filling out Advance Directives or other medical forms. It’s about talking to your loved ones about what you or they want for end-of-life care. The Conversation Project offers a Starter Kit that will help you or your organization to get your thoughts together and then have ‘The Conversation’.
A Chinese version of the Starter Kit is available on their website. (Please click on the Chinese link to download the PDF file.)
The Conversation Project – How to Talk to Your Doctor
The Conversation Project has updated How to Talk to Your Doctor, a guide to discussing end-of-life care with doctors, nurses, or other health care providers. The guide addresses basic steps that span the entire process (“Get Ready,” “Get Set,” “Go,” and “Keep Going”). It can be used as a workbook to make notes with a health care team. You can download the English 12-page PDF file here.
- Languages (on The Conversation Project’s website): Chinese, English, French, Korean, Spanish
Multilingual Resources, including Advance Directives or POLST are available on the Kōkua Mau website: www.kokuamau.org/languages.
Multilingual Key Advance Care Planning Materials in 10 languages (PDF file with list)
