Episode 71: Dr. Lane Frasier 

Lane Frasier, MD, is a general surgery chief resident at UW. Her research has evaluated teamwork and communication in the operating room. From a research standpoint, what happens in the operating room has been a black box, says Dr. Kohler. Dr. Frasier shares her research on surgeon behaviors in the OR and on the need for everyone in the operating room to be able to speak up. Here is a link to Dr. Frasier’s Grand Rounds talk on the subject.
