From darkness to healing: a urologist’s journey through suicidal ideation
In this poignant podcast episode, we welcome guest William Lynes, a urologist and survivor of physician burnout, who shares his personal journey through multiple suicide attempts. Join us as we delve into the four stages of suicidal ideation and the complex evolution of thoughts that lead to such drastic measures. William sheds light on the importance of acknowledging, accepting, anticipating, and ultimately taking action in the realm of suicidal behavior. While emphasizing that these stages do not condone suicide, we explore the significance of early intervention and effective support systems to help individuals in distress. Gain insights into the inner workings of the mind and the critical need for mental health awareness in medical professionals. Join us as we tackle this sensitive topic and foster a deeper understanding of suicidal ideation and prevention.

The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, utilizes artificial intelligence and natural language processing to automatically document care. It securely listens to and captures the natural, clinician-patient encounter conversation unobtrusively, and turns that conversation into a clinical note for the clinician’s review and signature directly in the electronic health record. You just talk naturally, and DAX does the rest.
DAX is being used by thousands of physicians across 30 different specialties nationwide. It has already won the Silver Stevie award in the health care technology category and was ranked #1 for improving clinician experience in KLAS’s top 20 emerging solutions.
