RESUMO

The response of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) to the COVID-19 pandemic was vigorous and effective because it had mature programs in surgical quality and health policy and advocacy, the legacy of decades of work by its officers and leaders and its current executive director, David Hoyt. Hoyt had the foresight to institute a digital communications platform upon which the College collected data for its clinical programs and conducted many of its meetings. Through internet portals, online communities, and social media it broadcasted news and information to the membership. When the global COVID-19 pandemic struck, the College was able to quickly mobilize its leaders and scientific experts to disseminate credible information, recommend protocols to maintain patient and provider safety in operating room environments, provide a rational scheme of prioritization of urgent surgical operations, and a sensible means of resumption of normal surgical practice. As the financial impact of the outbreak on surgical practice became apparent, the ACS represented the interests of surgeons in the White House, Capitol, federal agencies, and governors' mansions and statehouses. In an interview by Steven Wexner, a member of the ACS Board of Regents, Hoyt described the response of the ACS to an unprecedented threat to the surgical care of patients in the country and the world. His story demonstrates the legacy of credibility and professionalism built by decades of principled leadership of generations of officers and Regents of the College, and his own example of effective leadership in crisis.

RESUMO

From the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic of 2020, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has been a leader in disseminating credible information on the clinical and scientific aspects of the disease. As governmental regulations enforced the closure of hospitals and operating rooms to elective surgical cases as part of its "shelter-in-place" public lockdown policies, the ACS brought specialty societies together to create guidelines to protect patients and preserve surgical quality. Federal agencies made available financial aid programs to mitigate the economic impact of the outbreak. The division of advocacy and health policy of the ACS made certain that the interests of surgeons and their patients were served. Steven Wexner, member of the Board of Regents of the ACS interviewed the medical directors of the division, Frank Opelka in quality and health policy, and Patrick Bailey in advocacy, for their stories of how the College responded to the many health and public policy issues that came before Congress and governmental agencies during the pandemic.

RESUMO

The 25th Annual Congress of the International Liver Transplantation Society was held in Toronto, Canada, from May 15 to 18, 2019. Surgeons, hepatologists, anesthesiologists, critical care intensivists, radiologists, pathologists, and research scientists from all over the world came together with the common aim of improving care and outcomes for liver transplant recipients and living donors. Some of the featured topics at this year's conference included multidisciplinary perioperative care in liver transplantation, worldwide approaches to organ allocation, donor steatosis, and updates in pediatrics, immunology, and radiology. This report presents excerpts and highlights from invited lectures and select abstracts, reviewed and compiled by the Vanguard Committee of International Liver Transplantation Society. This will hopefully contribute to further advances in clinical practice and research in liver transplantation.

RESUMO

The Japanese Society of Neurology decided to aim to convert neurology, which is currently a subspecialty of internal medicine, to a basic specialty in the Japanese medical specialty system at the special general meeting of corporate members in January 2018. Because the details of new specialty system in Japan remain unstable, the committee to promote achievement of neurology as a basic specialty planned to hold a special symposium regarding the specialty system at the 60th annual meeting of the Japanese Society of Neurology in May 2019. This article compiles the abstracts of speakers in this symposium. Speakers were from Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, the Japan Medical Association, and our society members. We discussed the reason why neurology should be a basic specialty, the consideration indispensable for the regional health care as a basic specialty, how to reach our goal, and problems to overcome. Based on the decision at the special general meeting of corporate members mentioned above and such discussion, we will continue making best efforts to achieve neurology as a basic specialty through negotiation with relevant players including the Japanese Society of Internal Medicine.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To discuss the political and structural conditions for establishing the Unified Health System (UHS - Sistema Único de Saúde, SUS) in coping with the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. METHODS: Theoretical-reflection study. RESULTS: At the first moment named "The global and the local in facing the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic" is presented the health crisis that took place worldwide and the government actions to combat COVID-19. A second moment named "Between dismantling actions and resistance, the UHS is the best way to face the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic", reflects on the neoliberal attacks on the health system and how it resists, remaining the main pandemic response strategy. CONCLUSION: The strengthening of democracy and the defense of the UHS are the way out of the crisis. It is believed that this reflection generates - in everyone who deals with caretaking - the political action, the ethical attitude, the desire for valorization and the spirit of struggle in defense of the UHS and human life.

RESUMO

The Political Action Committee (PAC) of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons, also known as the OrthoPAC, is one of the most powerful and well-respected healthcare PACs in Washington, DC. Since its inception in 1999, the OrthoPAC has advocated at the federal level for orthopaedic patients and orthopaedic surgery as a profession. This manuscript will familiarize the reader with PACs, the history and structure of the OrthoPAC, important accomplishments of the OrthoPAC, current legislative positions, and leadership/organization. We also review the various ways that orthopaedic surgeons can engage in advocacy for musculoskeletal care.
