Joint modelling is the simultaneous modelling of longitudinal and survival data,
while taking into account a possible association between them. A common approach
in joint modelling studies is to assume that the repeated measurements follow a lin-
ear mixed e�ects model and the survival data is modelled using a Cox proportional
hazards model. The Cox model, however, requires a strong proportionality assump-
tion, which seems to be violated quite often. We, thus, propose the use of parametric
survival models. Additionally, joint modelling literature mainly deals with right-
censoring only and does not consider left-truncation, which can cause bias. The joint
model proposed here considers left-truncation and right-censoring.
