On 20-21 July 2019, the Faculty of Nursing at UBU organized a workshop to promote the potential of the people in the community in regard to the enhancement of elders’ well-being. The workshop was officially opened by Assistant Professor Dr. Sanguan Thanee, Dean of Faculty of Nursing,and was held at the Faculty of Nursing. There were 120 participants who are from neighboring communities around UBU. The workshop aimed to create understanding and provide knowledge on how to take care of elderly citizens including basic first aid and resuscitation. The knowledge provided at the workshop covered basic first aid topics such as caring for a syncope, faint, heatstroke, nosebleed, food diarrhea, scald, burn, dog/cat bite, chemical hazard, and choke. Additionally, basic Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation: CPR was also discussed. Through this workshop, not only did the potential of the people have an opportunity to improve, the promotion of the community’s self-reliance also increased. In knowing this information, community members are able to help each other if anything were to occur to one’s health, especially to elderly citizens.
UBU will continue to organize more academic service activities within the communities in order to promote the quality of their lives, increase their self-reliance, and to strengthen their potentials.
