What We Do > Leadership

Trauma Nova Scotia provides leadership, guidance, and strategic planning for the coordination and ongoing development of our provincial trauma system. Major trauma is common in Nova Scotia and is a leading cause of death and disability for a significant proportion of our population. Despite substantial efforts to change behaviors which lead to traumatic injury and initiatives to improve the medical system to manage traumatic injury, the burden of trauma continues to be felt by many.  We strive to ensure that our trauma system operates in a smooth and efficient manner, and that all major trauma patients in Nova Scotia are provided with the best possible trauma care .
