Welcome to Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) Policy page, which provides ready access to the most up-to-date policies and procedures for NSHA.

If your area/facility uses paper copies of policies, ensure you are using the most up-to-date version by checking on this site regularly. Only the digital copy of a policy is considered the original.

It's important to remember:

  • Once a NSHA Policy has been approved, it will be the applicable policy for all services, programs and facilities.
  •  Until new/applicable policies are developed for NSHA, refer ONLY to those that previously applied within your former DHA.
