As a Fellow, Evan is being mentored by NSHRF’s credentialed evaluators, Dr. Nancy Carter and Robert Chatwin, to develop hisunderstanding of the core competencies required for achieving the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) professional designation of Credentialed Evaluator (CE).

Evan cites the Fellowship as a landmark in his program evaluation career and journey so far. “As an early career evaluator, it is so important to gain hands-on, practical experience and connect with others working in the field,” he says. “It’s a privilege to receive mentorship from an organization that values evaluation culture for its benefits to the community and its internal operations.” 

NSHRF is pleased to introduce Mark Embrett, the new Manager of the REAL Knowledge Program. In this role, Mark will collaborate with a broad group of stakeholders throughout Nova Scotia’s health system to develop programs that support the transfer, exchange and application of knowledge.

Originally from Cape Breton, Mark says he’s grateful for the chance to bring his expertise back home. “This is an opportunity to support government policies that improve health system performance and patient health outcomes in Nova Scotia,” he explains. “By joining the NSHRF team I feel like I’ve come full circle.” 

NSHRF is pleased to announce the launch of their 2018-19 Scotia ScholarsOM Award competition (Undergraduate). The Scotia ScholarsOMAward provides financial support to high caliber research students engaged in health research at Nova Scotia universities.
