Programs

Our Centre offers 4 core clinical programs for women with vulvar disorders. Women with vulvar disorders are assessed in one of the following clinics; the Vulvar Disease Clinic, the Multidisciplinary Vulvodynia Program, and/or the Vulvar Oncology Clinic.

Women with pre-cancer skin conditions are initially assessed and treated in the Vulvar Oncology Clinic. After treatment these women will be followed in the Vulvar Intra-Epithelial Neoplasia Follow Up Clinic.

It is not unusual for a woman to have more than one vulvar condition – for example, Lichen Sclerosus and Vulvar Intra-Epithelial Neoplasia.  Thus some women may need to be seen in more than one clinic, and by more than one health care provider. Our Clinical Care Coordinator’s job is to help women move between programs and health care providers in order to receive individual and holistic health care.

The BC Centre for Vulvar Health Values

The BC Centre for Vulvar Health improves the quality of life for women living with vulvar disorders through women centered care, education and research. The Centre fosters a culture of openness, awareness, and exploration of approaches that have been shown to be effective in supporting women with vulvar disorders.  The ultimate goal is for women to feel empowered to make individualized and effective treatment choices within a respectful and compassionate environment.

Empowerment; Respect; Empathy; Evidence-based care.

Improving awareness of, and access to, evidence-based care for those women affected by vulvar disorders. This involves educating healthcare providers to take a holistic approach that recognizes that it’s not just about treating the specific vulvar condition; it’s about addressing the impact of that condition on a woman’s overall health.
