Introducing Cassy Mitchell, our New Engagement Leader!

We are pleased to welcome Cassy Mitchell as the new Engagement Leader in Northwest BC!

Cassy joins the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council as part of the team that supports PVN. She is taking over for Anthony Gagné, who recently took on another position within the Council.

Cassy brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Council, as both a patient and a health care provider. She originally became involved with PVN as a patient partner, and was part of PVN’s Oversight & Advisory Council for over a year. She has a Master’s degree in Health and a diploma in gerontology. When she emigrated to Canada from the UK in 2008, she worked for Northern Health as a nurse and supported public health information systems, before moving to a role with the Haisla Nation.

Cassy is excited to bring her skills to the team at the Council and to support PVN in a different capacity. She says “I feel it is important that health care organizations get to hear the patient experience when implementing change. I appreciate the challenges that can be faced by patients living in the North and the additional challenges faced by Indigenous populations.”

Welcome aboard, Cassy!
