2017: Oregon POLST Task Force Changes Its Name
Effective March 2017, the Oregon POLST Task Force changed its name to the Oregon POLST Coalition. After more than 25 years of development and service, members decided its name should reflect its intended permanent commitment. The group has been successful in its mission to develop a new method to translate patient preferences into actionable medical orders that follow patients across settings of care. The Coalition will continue to strengthen POLST education, technology, quality improvement, community involvement, and innovative research.
