Dr. Laura K. Rock is a Pulmonologist and Critical Care Physician at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts and Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School. She is faculty for the Center for Medical Simulation and a VitalTalk instructor. She believes the human connection is the pith to a functioning team, patient safety, and what brings the fun into our daily work. Laura strives for curiosity, respect and the spiciness of a great debrief to encourage difficult conversations and promote learning. She conducts research on interprofessional team debriefing and patient safety and runs training programs for effective and empathic communication; unit culture and how it affects teamwork, the patient experience, and clinician well-being; managing conflict at the bedside; and providing feedback that improves performance. Her most pressing personal challenge is implementing family debriefs to promote sanity and cohesion during COVID-19.
