In this interview, Dr. Joy Albuquerque and Dr. Sarah Tulk talk about physician suicide, the only cause of death more common in physicians than the general public. They discuss factors that can lead to suicide and suicidal ideation (such as regulatory complaints, mental illness and the culture in medicine) as well as what can be done to prevent this occupational health hazard. They also discuss how suicidal physicians face unique barriers to care, including concerns regarding confidentiality and discrimination.
