Values Feedback

Nova Scotia Health Authority has identified five values that guide the delivery of health care and health promotion, and shape how we work with patients, health care providers and staff, and communities. These are:

  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Courage
  • Innovation
  • Accountability
We are seeking feedback on these values to validate them, and to identify any opportunities to improve or add to them.

Before completing this survey you will want to review the NSHA Values in the Document Library, found in the column to the right.

Respect -- Underlies our interactions with each other and the people we serve. It insists on caring, compassion and understanding, and embraces our diversity and differences to foster a positive environment for good health.
Integrity -- Is at the heart of who we are and what we do. In a world that constantly challenges us, our integrity guides us to do what is honest and ethical.
Courage -- Strengthens our resolve to do what is right for the health and wellness of Nova Scotians. We must, as an organization and as individuals, listen to others, have open and honest conversations, and make difficult decisions.
Innovation -- Requires inquisitiveness, focused attention and creative solutions. We welcome and seize opportunities to create value. It is through our pursuit of excellence, individually and collectively, that new ideas and knowledge can emerge to advance health, healing and learning.
Accountability -- Is our individual and organizational duty to be answerable to the people we serve and each other. It means our decisions and actions are transparent, based on evidence and focused on positive outcomes. We manage ourselves and our finite resources to ensure an effective and sustainable health and wellness system in Nova Scotia.
