"How can a nurse deliver effective and compassionate health care to people who use drugs? Bevel Up follows a team of street nurses as they reach out to youth, sex workers, and street-entrenched men and women in the alleys and hotels of Vancouver's inner city. Most importantly, the nurses reflect on attitudes they bring to their work--attitudes that can make or break the relationship needed to successfully provide practical and nonjudgmental health care. Produced by the Street Nurse Program of the BC Centre for Disease Control, Bevel Up is designed to help student nurses and seasoned professionals working with drug-using populations. A groundbreaking interactive DVD, Bevel Up offers dynamic and different ways to learn over four hours of street scenes and expert interviews. The documentary (45 mins): compelling on-location footage follows a team of experienced outreach nurses as they bring health care directly to the streets and to their clients. Chapters (with teaching menus): Bevel Up can also be viewed in eight chapters. At the end of each chapter there's a dedicated menu that includes reflections on practice and +topics. Reflections on practice: interviews with nurses who are featured in the chapter, plus a nursing ethicist and a nursing practice consultant. +Topics: twenty-six interviews with leading experts on revelant subjects such as drugs and the brain, pregnancy, mental health, prohibition and sex work. Bevel Up also comes with a teacher's guide outlining learning activities, discussion points and additonal resources to augment each chapter."--Container.
