Looks at the relationship between caregiving and its impact on the health and economic condition of caregivers and individuals who receive care in Nova Scotia.
The Healthy Balance Research program worked to: examine the relationship among unpaid caregiving work (performed on its own or in combination with paid work), empowerment and health status; foster "uptake" of new ideas and practices in policies; promote innovation in programs and health-service delivery that reflects new insights into the values and expectations brought to caregiving and paid work; and, strengthen research capacity in Atlantic Canada by recruiting and retaining health researchers. It was a collaboration between the Atlantic Centre of Excellence for Women's Health (ACEWH), Dalhousie University and the Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women (NSACSW).
