In Search of Remote Health Care – Nelson Norman

With the birth of the offshore oil industry in Aberdeen came a set of difficult and unforseen challenges to the Scottish medical profession. In Search of Remote Health Care follows the response of the health industry to these challenges, from the first steps in supporting deep-sea divers to the foundation of a new system of remote medicine that would be successfully exported around the world.

Nelson Norman describes how Aberdeen became a centre of excellence for this new discipline, and how the dedicated doctors and nurses from around Scotland came to be regarded as amongst the foremost authorities on remote medicine, attracting attention from industry, universities and international bodies such as the British Antarctic Survey. He documents the difficulties of setting up an entirely new system of medicine, while remembering the professionals who were so instrumental in improving the health care of people living and working in remote communities world-wide.

Nelson Norman is President of the Institute for Remote Health Care, and has spent over thirty years developing, teaching and practising remote health care.
