The Hospital Universitari de Bellvitge is a public university hospital located near Barcelona and serving a population of about 200,000 people.
In March 2009, we began serving in-patients with hip fracture and coordinating with the pain clinic to address pain treatment simultaneously with the secondary prevention of fractures. Since May 2015, we have established a complete FLS, handling all types of fragility fractures and managing about 600 patients per year. The unit is run by the Rheumatology Service with the support of the Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Services.
We are integrated in the SEIOMM-UFO project and work with RHUFO, a software tool specifically designed to facilitate the work of FLS and to meet the quality standards of the Best Practice Framework.
