Addressing provider turnover to improve health outcomes in Nunavut – CMAJ

KEY POINTS

  • Nunavut’s health care system relies heavily on short-term locum providers, many of whom come from outside the territory.

  • Accumulating data from other jurisdictions highlight the negative impacts of high turnover of providers on the quality of care, including the difficulty of ensuring culturally competent care.

  • Strategies to develop a local or Indigenous workforce, train and hire Inuit or Northern nurses and physicians who would be more likely to stay long term in the territory, retain committed non-Inuit physicians who regularly return to or live in Nunavut, and offer adequate health system and cultural orientation to all health care professionals working in the territory would go a long way toward improving the situation.
