The MMU can be adapted to meet the diverse needs of various outpatient clinical needs or outreach programs. The facility is particularly useful for multi-disciplinary teams that may include doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, and other experts who work together to provide care in one location.
Advantages of using the MMU for outpatient care include:
- the ability to offer closer to home, specialized care for patients living in rural and remote areas of BC
- spacious, high-tech, and comfortable environment for patient visits
- access to a broad range of MMU clinical equipment
- flexibility to adapt the MMU space to meet specific clinical and patient-flow needs.
First-aid level of care can be offered in conjunction with higher levels of care. This is most often the case at events and festivals where the MMU is integrated into medical services plans. First aid level care is often combined with the offering of higher levels of care.
