Provincial Wound Program

About the Provincial Wound Program

The Wound Management Program is a new program developed by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness (DHW). DHW has partnered with Heath Association of Nova Scotia (HANS) to oversee and deliver the provincial program by supporting the continuing care sector which includes all the licensed funded long-term care providers and DHW-funded home care providers that provide nursing services. 

The foundation for this program is to assist the sector taking a consistent approach in the prevention and management of evidence-informed wound care, improve wound management outcomes and build capacity through knowledge transfer within the continuing care sector. 

HANS will provide clinical support through a Program Coordinator and four Wound Consultants covering all zones. This program enables the continuing care sector to send referrals to the consultants who then can provide treatment suggestions, wound education, and onsite home visits.

If you have any questions please contact one of the consultants at: woundcare@healthassociation.ns.ca
