The purpose of the New Brunswick Student Wellness Survey (NBSWS) is to examine students' perceptions, attitudes and behaviours in a number of key areas related to student well-being. It is a provincial initiative of the New Brunswick Department of Social Development - Wellness Branch in cooperation with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. Data collection and analysis is carried out by the NBHC. A summary of key indicators, including comparisons with the 2015-2016 edition of the survey, is appended to the end of some reports.
Using results based on the responses of more than 6,900 New Brunswickers who participated in the 2018 edition of the NBHC’s Home Care Survey, this document looks at their health service experiences for the Extra-Mural Program, the Long Term Care Program and the Disability Support Program. It discusses the aspects of quality of program services that go beyond simply measuring satisfaction, and encourages those responsible for the programs to create targets based on the survey indicators.

Using results from the 2017 edition of the Primary Health Survey, this document discusses a new measure of unmet home care need among the general population of New Brunswick and the implications of New Brunswickers being able to stay in their homes. It also shows geographic and demographic variability of unmet needs, and suggests that those responsible for home care services further review unmet need and incorporate their findings into planning and service delivery.
This infographic presents the idea of unmet home care need and shows the proportion of New Brunswickers who reported having unmet need, by community.
