BFCC – Fostering innovation for better fracture management: Meet Anna Eckers at ScanBalt Forum
Due to the demographic change, the need for innovative products and clinical procedures for fracture treatment is increasing as a response to age-related fractures and co-morbidities such as osteoporosis, infections and non-unions.
The Baltic Fracture Competence Centre (BFCC) will set up local fracture registries at five hospitals around the Baltic Sea Region and link them together in one transnational fracture registry.
This will support hospitals and companies in the Baltic Sea Region in identifying needs and potentials for innovation within fracture management.
