Methods: This prospective observational study included 234 subjects with incident osteoporotic fractures managed long-term by the Concord SFP programme. Using Cox proportional hazards models, predictors of re-fracture were analysed separately for patients commenced on specific pharmacotherapy (group 1, N = 171) and subjects receiving calcium and/or vitamin D supplements only (group 2, N = 63). Relevant anthropometric, clinical and technical data were documented at each visit. Compliance and persistence were analysed as time-varying covariates.
