'Bevel Up', is an award-winning documentary and learning resource to help healthcare workers deliver compassionate care to people who use drugs.'Bevel Up' follows street nurses as they reach out to people working in the sex trade, and people who use drugs in the alleys and hotels of Vancouver’s inner city. Most importantly the nurses reflect on the attitudes they bring to their work—attitudes that can make or break their relationships with the people to whom they provide practical, non-judgemental health care on a daily basis.
