Health Screening at Yio Chu Kang Zone 3
As part of their final year project, a class of Year 3 Nursing students collaborated with Yio Chu Kang Zone 3 Resident Committee to provide a free health check-up for communities around Ang Mo Kio Estate on the 1st of July 2017.
The day started early for students and lecturers as they prepared the different stations. At 2pm sharp, doors were opened as they welcomed a constant flow of elderly residents. Vision, risk of depression, urinary incontinence, gait and fall risk assessment are among the items assessed by the year 3 student nurses. Final year physiotherapy students were also present to assess knee pain and its impact on functional status.
