Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Paraprofessional health care workers in rural Alaska rely on an intact communication system for guidance in patient care and as a source of support for themselves in performing a difficult job. Though able to function without the system when necessary, the telephone reduces the crushing sense of responsibility and profound isolation experienced by CHAs as they struggle to meet the health care needs of their communities.
