Abstract: The Community Assessment of Risk Assessment and Treatment Strategy (CARTS) programme is defined by the investigators as a risk intervention strategy that aims to screen, triage, assess and treat to reduce the risk of frailty and three adverse outcomes (AO) - institutionalisation, hospitalisation and death - in community dwelling older adults. The programme uses two instruments, Risk Instrument for Screening in the Community (RISC) and the Community Assessment of Risk Instrument (CARI). The RISC screens individuals to identify concerns in three domains, mental state, activities of daily living (ADLs) and medical state. The RISC then triages people into low, medium and high risk and describes the factors that are causing risk. The CARI is a more comprehensive assessment tool which also aims to identify the factors that create risk. The programme has been developed by researchers at the Centre for Gerontology and Rehabilitation in University College Cork.
