There are several provincial programs that offer specialist outreach clinics across the province, however, securing adequate space to host these clinics can be challenging.
The MMU offers a comfortable and modern space that outreach clinicians can adapt to make their own in order to provide the best possible care for their patients.
The ability to offer specialized outreach clinics in communities throughout BC means closer to home visits for many patients. This provides significant relief for individuals who have to travel several hours for an appointment, especially those living in rural and remote areas of the province.
To date, the MMU has been used to provide outreach to adult and pediatric hemophilia patients in collaboration with the Provincial Blood Coordinating Office in Interior and Fraser Health authorities, as well as cystic fibrosis patients in Fraser Health Authority and Interior Health Authority.
