Post-surgery complications within fracture treatment are a focus of the BFCC project. Within its fracture registry there is also the documentation of those complications. The project partners have developed a "Core Event Set" for this purpose. In the pilot phase, a Delphi process is used to determine which elements are to be included.
Stakeholders are invited to evaluate the set. The suggestions will be considered and help to develop a classification system for postoperative complications within fracture treatment. The aim is to identify improvement potentials for innovative products, services and technologies.
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.
