The MMU can be adapted for primary care or outreach programs, and is useful for multi-disciplinary teams, such as doctors, psychosocial nurses, and other experts who work together to provide care in one location. There are numerous benefits to patients when the MMU visits rural communities for primary care:
Access for patients in marginalized communities
Significantly reduced travel time for patients and families
Patients are seen within their own community and connected through their normal health care provider.
