Abstract
"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 non-judgmental health care."--container.
