Decision Aids were developed by Mary Cadogan, DrPH, RN, GNP, Professor of the University of California, Los Angeles School of Nursing. Literacy content and accessibility was drafted by Rebecca Sudore, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine at University of California, San Francisco, and was expertly reviewed by academics, POLST physician champions, hospice physicians, social workers, and other experts. Institute for Healthcare Advancement (IHA), an organization that focuses on health literacy, provided consultation on the layout, design and illustration of the guides.
The Pediatric Decision Guides were developed by Robin Kramer, RN, MS, PNP, coordinator of the Pediatric Palliative Care Program, University of California, San Francisco, Devon Dabbs, Executive Director, and Leslie Adams, MSW, of the Children’s Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition. The Guides were reviewed by academics, pediatricians, social workers, and family advisory panels.
Decision Guides were made possible by a grant from the California Health Care Foundation
