Venue: Port Louis
UHP will be holding its third Diabetic Clinic of the term on Saturday, November 11th, and we will be in need of some lovely volunteers to help out! This clinic holds tremendous value in the community — diabetes has a large prevalence in Grenada, but most patients are unable to manage their disease properly due to a lack of access to healthcare. As such, the clinic serves as a source of primary care for many of these patients. There will be a podiatrist on site at GARP to perform wound debridement and wound care.
You will have the opportunity to experience patient encounters where many of them will view and treat you as their doctors. You will take full medical histories and perform all relevant physical examinations on your own (including blood pressure, blood glucose, cardiovascular, foot checks and any other necessary exams). Volunteer physicians will be available for further patient consultation. Priority will be given to Term 4 and 5 students but Term 2 will be allowed when space permits!
Professional attire including white coat are required. Full PD kits are also required (please also bring gloves)
