Symposium 1
Indonesia guideline development

Surgical side infection are challenging the surgical fields, due to increased morbidity or ended with operative mortality. Many International guideline to prevent SSI were published, but due to different population region, and medical falsities made that cannot run operationally. Indonesia as a big archipelago country with his own characteristic need his own Guideline by and adaptation or adjustment of International CPG. The proses proceed in steps recommended by ADAPTED, the recommendation were established by the hierarchy of evidences on GRADE. The approval of the recommendation are by the task force through using the Delphi method. With this proses SSI CPG base on the Indonesia data will overcome the heterogeneity and more accepted in our region.

Symposium 3
Prevention and management of anastomosis leakage in HPB surgery

Anastomosis leakages were bad experience for both patients and surgeons. There were many factors influence this result and as a type of organ SSI microbial and antibiotic are important for to overcome the impact of this leaks. Pancretico Jejonostomy anastomosis after Pancreatico duodenal resection are the most divesting condition, in HPB surgery fields. Good technique ,adequate drainage tube and no infection are factor which influence the outcome

Yuichi Yoshida MD., PhD.
Sanmu Medical Center, Japan

During from the time of the fifth grader of Medical School, I visited in Third Department of Surgery as a student. So I went on to the postgraduate of Toho University (Chief Professor Yoshinobu Sumiyama, M.D.) and started study of surgical infection, and also joined in the research group, Surgical Infection Society-Japan (SIS-J) in 1992. I joined as a member of the 24-member delegation of the SIS-J, to give a lecture on MRSA infection research at the Sino-Japanese International Symposium on Surgical Infection since 1996. I acquired the Ph. D. degree in 1999.
The SIS-J was reorganized from research group to academic organization, Japan Society for Surgical Infection (JSSI) in November 2002. Then the JSSI installed eight principal committees in 2003, which included International Relations Committee. And at the same time, the JSSI executives elected me as a committee member.
I joined the Surgical Infection Society-Europe since 2003, in charge of Europe of the International Relations Committee JSSI, and became a member of SIS-E. I was at Summit meeting (SIS-North America, Europe, and JSSI) in 2008 at Sapporo, during in 21st Annual Meeting of the JSSI. In spite of we prepared an international symposium, with a delegate from Latin America, the Combined Meeting of the SISs at Chicago in 2009 was not realized due to new type influenza outbreak. However, these preparations lead to foundation of the SIS-LA, and
I am also taking in charge of SIS-LA.
JSSI held an Invited Lecture by President of the SIS-E, and SIS-E held an Invited Lecture by President of JSSI in 2010. We made mutual invitation relationship. And a symposium in Munich had led to renewal of the Int’l Guidelines for Management of Acute Cholangitis and Acute Cholecystitis and Indonesian Society for Surgical Infection.
A conference of Korean Research Group on Surgical Infections formed in April 2011. Kick-off meeting was installed in June 29. JSSI decided to invite Prof. Suk-Hwan Lee to organize 1st Asian symposium. The Asian Symposium led to form Surgical Infection Society-Asia Pacific.
JSSI has been requested the Vice Chairperson of the International Relations Committee to me, although I left the Toho University in 2009.
I am continuing surgery as general surgeon as a part of comprehensive primary care in Sanmu Medical Center.
ㆍ The professional serves as a strategy for coping with current situations
and dealing with the social roles.
Symposium 3
The professional serves as a strategy for coping with current situations and dealing with the social roles.

Role of the professional is a comprehensive pattern of behavior that is socially recognized. However, they provides learning of prevention of the surgical site infections during in Diplomat surgeon training, although placing rudimentary medicine and clinical medicine exist as education before the graduation from a medical school. The professional social role expectations include both actions and qualities: so they organize surgical infection society, and tackles through multi-institution joint research.
