BFCC Fracture - Registry
Within the framework of the EU Project Baltic Fracture Competence Center (BFCC), a fracture registry is created. Part of it is the documentation of complications. This part is called the "Core Event Set". In the pilot phase, a Delphi process is used to work out which items should be captured in it.

On one hand, the registry shall be used for clinical research purposes, but on the other hand it should also cover population-medical issues and enable retrospective product safety assurance in trauma implants.

We invite you to evaluate the "Core Event Set" of the BFCC Fracture Complication Registry. We are happy to implement any suggestions of yours.
