The Danish Fracture Database (DFDB) is a clinical quality database that monitors operations to treat fracture in Denmark. Fracture-related operations are some of the most frequent orthopaedic surgical operations and DFDB was established so as to monitor the quality the of operations to treat fracture on the basis of assessing re-operation rate, primarily within the first post-operative year.

Secondarily, it is intended to lead to quality improvements by focusing on the types of fracture for which quality is not deemed sufficiently good. DFDB has been operating nationally since 2015 and all fracture-related operations are notified to the database by the surgeon.

The Regional Clinical Quality Databases

Data about clinical quality are collected with the purpose of monitoring and raising the quality of patient treatment in the Danish health-care system. These data can, as well as all other public registers, be made accessible for research projects based on systematic protocols and approved according to the relevant legislations.

Applying for access to data from a regional clinical database requires a list of demands to be obtained. A project description should be attached containing a description of the project explaining the rationale, purpose, methods, budget, publication plan etc.

Furthermore, The Danish Data Protection Agency must approve the project.

Application process

  • Application for data access is sent to the board of the database
  • After approval the application is forwarded to the contact person of the database
  • The contact person controls the application
