Research & Innovation

Nova Scotia Health is a hub of cutting-edge discovery and innovation. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the level of care we are able to provide. We have also partnered with Dalhousie University and the IWK Health Centre to create a world-leading research environment.

By pooling our resources, we are giving our people the tools to put their ideas into action and forge positive change in our communities.

Our 2020 Research and Innovation Annual Report (.pdf) has just been released. In it, you’ll find inspiring stories of research, innovation and partnership.This vital work is evidence of our commitment to health care innovation that means better health care and outcomes for Nova Scotians.
