The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) District Stroke Program is administered through the ABI program.
Strategies of Hope is an innovative documentary collaboration between filmmaker Ariella Pahlke and patients, staff and families at the Nova Scotia Rehabilitation Centre’s Acquired Brain Injury Program. Using a variety of art forms, they explore the effects of a stroke or brain injury and share strategies for recovery.
