Outreach clinics in B.C. communities means closer-to-home visits for many patients.
Bringing specialist care to patients in rural and remote communities saves them significant travel time and money.
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.
The MMU program is flexible to collaborate with health authority leadership and First Nations communities as to what type of clinic the MMU can support.
Some example primary care missions and outreach clinics:
2012 – Interior Health Authority, pediatric and adult hemophilia clinic.
2016 – Cowichan Tribes, pediatric respiratory therapy clinic
