On November 3, 2016, The Honourable Leo Glavine, Minister of Health and Wellness, tabled the 2015/2016 NSHRF Annual Report.
The theme of this year’s report is Resilience. Inside, we illustrate the resilience that the NSHRF and the research enterprise it supports has demonstrated in the face of numerous challenges over the past 16 years, all the while maintaining the highest standards of excellence. We have accomplished this by working with our stakeholders, including provincial government, the provincial health authority and the IWK, and researchers on numerous initiatives and funding opportunities, such as:
- Supporting health research in Nova Scotia by nurturing careers, monitoring progress, and championing researchers provincially, nationally and internationally
- Providing a foundation for informed decision making based on evidence; and
- Generating greater awareness among Nova Scotians about the benefits of health research
