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 northern 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.
