Margaret Allee Recognized for Improving End-of-Life Care

Margaret Allee, faculty member in the School of Business, was honored for her innovative and compassionate work in palliative care by the Supportive Care Coalition at the coalition's national conference in Anaheim, Calif., in June 2013.

Allee was recognized with a Quality Award for her work in the creation of an electronic Physician Order for Life Sustaining Treatment system while division director at Providence Medical Group. The ePOLST system replaces the traditional approach for completion of POLST documents. It improved the process for documenting a patient's end-of-life wishes, increased the numbers of POLSTs completed for patients, improved continuity of care and the ability to honor patients' preferences.

Margaret Allee is a nurse, attorney and ethicist who has worked in the health care and insurance industries for more than 38 years, including 25+ years serving in health care leadership positions. She was appointed to Oregon's POLST Registry Advisory Committee in 2013.
