On 30 April 2014, 36 Year 1 students of the Higher Diploma in Medical and Health Products Management programme spent an afternoon with more than 100 elderly of the Po Leung Kuk Wong Chuk Hang Service for the Elderly. Students prepared games, performances and small gift packs for the elderly. The Social Worker of the Home, Ms. Anthery Hui and Ms. Yeung Tsz Shan, introduced the government’s policy on elderly housing and the daily operation of this elderly home. Ms. Yoko Chan, the Dispenser of the Home and the graduate of HD in Medical and Health Products Management programme, illustrated the high quality drug dispensing service of the Dispensary. Besides having an enjoyable and meaningful afternoon, the students understood more about the work of a dispenser, and gained precious experience in communicating with elderly people.
