Being a health care professional in Nothern Canada can be
challenging, especially for those who have spent most of their
careers in urban hospitals. Doin' the Locum Motion tells the
story of a doctor who decides to broaden her career by
relocating to work in small nothern communities. Her journey
illustrates the hardships of being a physician in remote
settlements where people are often skeptical of outsiders.
Stories of her despair reveal that with few medical and human
resources, health care providers are often asked to go
beyond their call of duty to save lives. In heroic and tragic
stories, Chris Rolton gives the reader an inside view of her
experiences and ordeals as a doctor living in the Nothern
Canada while providing a unique, cultural look into our
sometimes forgotten geographic altitudes.
