Which Part of a Short, Global Risk Assessment, the Risk Instrument for Screening in the Community, Predicts Adverse Healthcare Outcomes?

Table 2

Comparison of the accuracy and area under the curve (AUC) scores with 95% confidence intervals (CI), of the Risk Instrument for Screening in the Community (RISC), the caregiver network for each domain and a selection of cognitive and functional tests including the Barthel Index, abbreviated mental test score, Charlson Comorbidity Index, and the Clinical Frailty Score.
