Formatted abstract
In response to high rates of chronic disease, the Capital District Health Authority in Nova Scotia recognized a need to move from a focus on acute care in decision making to one that also values a population health approach guided by community health indicators.

Stakeholders were surveyed on the choice, knowledge and utility of selected indicators.

Respondents reported high scores for changes in their knowledge and attitude regarding community health indicators, and identified priority indicators for action.Decision makers’ use of community health indicators was increased by stakeholder involvement, supporting evidence in plain language, and wide dissemination.
