New 2022 VT DNR/COLST Form: New Form for Clinician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment

Posted: May 31, 2022

On June 1, 2022, the updated VT DNR/COLST form takes effect. All new orders should be completed on this form if possible, although orders on previously approved VT DNR/COLST forms remain legal and valid. Unless there are changes to the order, there is no requirement to transfer prior orders onto new forms. Learn more about the updated form and best practices for clinicians completing these orders by watching our Information Session video and reviewing the accompanying slide deck. The form is available for download here, and on our Forms page.
