Join us as we delve into the controversial topic of assisted suicide with our guest, Nicholas S. Tito, a medical student. This thought-provoking episode will explore the Western world's growing support for legally assisted euthanasia and the redefinition of "immense suffering." Our guest argues that considering mental health disorders eligible for assisted euthanasia is a pathology of reason and questions the idea of absolute patient autonomy. He also touches on the role of psychiatrists in defining "the good" and the importance of rejecting the current postmodern craze. This is a must-listen for anyone interested in the ethics of medical practice and the future of end-of-life care.
Nicholas S. Tito is a medical student.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "The slippery slope of legal assisted suicide and euthanasia."

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.
