Evidence informed decision-making is a key component of all aspects of the public domain; however, a practical method for generating evidence to inform decisions is not always readily available. The NSHRF presents a four-stage approach to generating evidence, which involves: establishing a work plan and gathering background information; collecting data; synthesizing and summarizing data; and evaluation of the process and its implementation.

The NSHRF is pleased to announce that our 2013-14 Annual Report: Informing Nova Scotians is now available. In this report, we illustrate how the NSHRF and the health researchers we support are addressing areas that will improve the health of Nova Scotians. We do this by working with our stakeholders, including provincial government, health authorities and health researchers on a number of initiatives and funding opportunities.
