Bevel Up: Drugs, Users and Outreach Nursing

Buy From NFB



Bevel Up is an educational film designed to give students and instructors access to the experience of health care practitioners who work with the drug-using population of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Produced by the same street nurses who work with these users on a daily basis, the film contains invaluable knowledge that can’t be found in nursing schools and teaching hospitals.

A team of street nurses reach out to youth, sex workers and street-entrenched men and women in Vancouver’s inner city. Most importantly the nurses reflect on attitudes they bring to their work – attitudes that make or break the relationship needed to provide practical and nonjudgmental health care.

Bevel Up consists of

  • 45-min documentary – compelling on-location footage follows a team of experienced outreach nurses
  • Chaptered version of documentary with teaching menus
  • Reflections on Practice – from nurses, a nursing ethicist and a nursing practice consultant
  • +Topics – 26 interviews with leading experts on relevant subjects
