141. WHO Guidelines on Integrated Care for Older People (ICOPE)

, is “the composite of all of the physical and mental capacities that an individual can draw on”. The WHO public health framework for Healthy Ageing focuses on the goal of maintaining intrinsic capacity and functional ability across the life course. Health care professionals in clinical settings can detect declines in physical and mental capacities (clinically expressed as impairments) and deliver effective interventions to prevent and delay progression. Yet early markers of declines in intrinsic capacity (...) to the present guidance is an ICOPE implementation guide, which addresses how to set person-centred care goals, develop an integrated care plan, and provide self-management support. This will also include guidance to lead the practitioner through the process of assessing, classifying and managing declining physical and mental capacities in older age in an integrated way. The present guidelines and the supplementary implementation guide are both organized into three modules. • Module I: Declines in intrinsic

Prothrombin time (PT) and INR are assessments of blood clot- ting, which are used to measure liver function, as the underlying protein clotting factors (II, V , VII, IX and X) are made in the liver. If there is significant liver injury (usually loss of >70% of synthetic function), this results in a reduction in clotting factor production and subsequent coagulopathy, as confirmed by a prolonged PT or INR. While a prolonged PT/INR can indicate (...) that in some patients with autoimmune hepatitis their fibrosis stage progresses despite apparent control of their inflammatory process via perceived normal aminotransferase levels.
