Background: The number of studies using joint modelling of longitudinal and survival data have increased in the past two decades, but analytical techniques and software shortcomings have remained. A joint model is often used for analysis of a combination of longitudinal sub-model and survival sub-model using shared random effects. Cox regression commonly referring to the survival sub-model, should not be used when proportional hazards assumptions are not satisfied. In such cases, the parametric survival model is preferable.
