Breaking the stigma: Using life coaching to navigate chronic disease

Join us with guest Kimberly Jackson-Bekemeier, a family physician with a personal story of managing Type 1 diabetes amidst the pandemic. Kimberly shares her journey of struggling with the diagnosis, feeling lost and alone, until she discovered the power of life coaching. She shares how this process allowed her to take control of her emotions and make a choice to live on her own terms, even with a chronic disease.

Kimberly highlights the importance of mental clarity in the medical system and how life coaching provides a space for patients to listen to their thoughts, emotions and facts to ultimately lead to better patient satisfaction and outcomes. Don’t miss this inspiring episode as Kimberly sheds light on the human experience and encourages us to explore the other facets impacting our patients and meet them where they are to help them towards where they’d like to go.

Kimberly Jackson-Bekemeier is a board-certified family physician and founder, Coaching Chronic Disease, LLC. She can be reached on Facebook and Instagram.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “A doctor’s journey: Navigating chronic disease and empowerment through life coaching.”

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.

At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.

Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.
