Areas covered: We review available data and propose a new approach to improve adherence to osteoporosis therapy in clinical practice. We present the current evidence and personal experience from a group of Italian osteoporosis experts.Expert opinion: To improve adherence, we propose a multifaceted approach, which includes the Triad Model suggested by the World Health Organization, direct observed therapy and the use of drugs with longer administration intervals, e.g., zoledronic acid. The integration of these strategies may provide the basis for a marked increase in adherence to osteoporosis therapy, and improved clinical outcomes in a real-life scenario.
