Canadian Operating Room Leaders
In Celebration of the Life of Patricia Pocock
Posted: Fri, Sep 25th 2020
It is with heavy hearts we send this message to you. Patricia Pocock, RN, of London, Ontario passed away September 19th, 2020. Pat was 80 years old.
A quiet change agent, Pat was a steadfast member and contributor to ORNAC.  Pat was instrumental, along with her colleague Muriel Shewchuk, in the creation of the Canadian Operating Room Leaders group (CORL) and subsequently bringing this group to the ORNAC Board table. This seat, first created by Pat and Muriel, is called Leadership and describes Pat well as she was a leader in so many ways. She was a senior OR manager, Department head, Director in her practice at St. Joseph’s Hospital, London, Ontario. She was a leader with the CORL group. She was a leader with ORNAC, on the board as co-chair of Advocacy/Governance and moved the organization through its incorporation phase. She was a leader who always saw the good to be achieved in change, and the good in the people who would be required to make those changes.
The nursing community has lost a great lady, perioperative nurse and friend. We mourn her loss and send our sincerest condolences to her husband and family.
Thank you Pat for the privilege of your presence in so much of our work. We will miss you.
