School of Nursing outreach activity
The Interprofessional Education Unit (IPEU) in the Faculty of Community and Health Sciences (FCHS) at the University of the Western Cape hosts a community outreach project each year.

This is a interdisciplinary event including the schools of nursing, physiotherapy, biokinetics, dietetics, dental health and natural medicine. The School of Nursing participates in this initiative and provides services such as health assessments to the community who have limited access to preventative care such as blood pressure monitoring, glucose, and cholesterol checks.

Nursing students have the opportunity to apply their community nursing skills and provide health education and client referrals where needed.
