2013-14 The Edward A. Dickson Emeritus/a Professorship Award: Kathleen Montgomery

Kathleen Montgomery

Kathleen Montgomery
Professor of the Graduate Division
Area of Management

Emeritus Professor of Organizations and Management, will continue conducting research with collaborators across the globe, engage in extensive editorial service, and participate at a high level in professional associations in the U.S. and internationally. She will be serving as a co-editor of a substantial reference work, The Oxford Handbook on Health Care Management. In addition to her work on the Oxford Handbook, she will serve as a co-editor of a volume based on a selection of papers from the 2012 OBHC conference, Patient-Centered Health Care: Achieving Co-ordination, Communication, and Innovation, under contract with Palgrave-Macmillan. To maintain ongoing research with colleagues at the University of Sydney’s Centre for Values, Ethics, and the Law in Medicine (VELiM), several weeks will be spent in residence. Collaborations with colleagues at VELiM have been highly productive and mutually rewarding. In particular, Emeritus Professor Montgomery has been able to merge her expertise in the development of the medical profession and professional trust with issues related to bioethics and patient-care ethics, which are of central interest to scholars at VELiM. The founding director of VELiM, Professor Miles Little, is one of the leading thinkers of what is called values-based medicine, and Emeritus Professor Montgomery been invited to contribute a chapter to a volume under contract with Cambridge University Press devoted to various strands in this literature. Her work on this chapter will discuss how this theory relates to the development and organization of the medical profession; it will be facilitated during a visit to Sydney when she can engage more deeply with Professor Little about his ideas. In addition, Emeritus Professor Montgomery will be an advisor on a new grant to begin in 2014 that will bring a conflict-of-interest perspective to the study of health technology assessment and resource allocation. Her involvement on this project derives from earlier research on professional-organizational conflicts faced in the selection and evaluation of medical devices (Montgomery & Schneller, Milbank Q, 2007) and involvement with the U.S. Office of Research Integrity. While at VELiM, Emeritus Professor Montgomery also will participate in research workshops and meet frequently with doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows, to provide guidance on their projects.
