Promoting information

Helping people is a big part of what we do. Whether we’re improving health care by teaching students to be more effective and efficient, or developing a program to reduce wait times, we’ve always got Atlantic Canadians in mind. But we also provide information through our publications—and this information can go a long way towards bettering our health care.
