Formatted Abstract/Summary
Vitamin D deficiency is increasingly common in refugee populations, even in regions with significant sunshine. We investigated (i) the demographic and biochemical predictors of vitamin D deficiency; (ii) the efficacy of different treatment regimens and; (iii) the factors associated with therapeutic outcomes in a retrospective cohort study of child and adolescent refugees resettled in Western Australia (WA).
