Injuries Are Costly
Who We Are
How do we do this?
We do this first through engaging health care professionals and researchers to share current and credible evidence on the causes of preventable injuries in this province and identify trends. We then work with diverse stakeholder groups to incorporate community-level experience of the issue, assess current policies and determine policy changes that evidence indicates will impact most positively on injury levels. Through then informing and engaging Nova Scotians to advocate with us for these policy changes, we work in partnership provincially to help create a safer province in which to work, play and explore.
Injury Free Nova Scotia appreciates being a part of a broader provincial health promotion network, reflecting injury prevention's important role in promoting overall good health for all Nova Scotians.
