"Lexie is recognized as a local, regional and provincial expert in quality improvement for her commitment to putting the patient at the centre of conversations about care, and for her promotion of comprehensive and consistent incident reporting as a critical component of quality improvement," the association said in a news release.

"She has been a tireless advocate for the province’s Patient Safety Learning System."

Gordon has represented Northern Health for 16 years on the BC Patient Centred Measurement Committee, where she helped develop a provincially co-ordinated survey to measure the patient experience in B.C.’s health care system, the association said, with the results used to improve patient experiences.

In 2010, Gordon led the team that was awarded the BC Patient Safety and Quality Council team award for their quality improvement initiative in the area of medication reconciliation.

In 2016, Gordon was awarded the 3M Canada Team Award for improving patient experience in cancer care.
