  1. Data are total numbers complemented in brackets by frequencies. CGA, comprehensive geriatric assessment; ISAR, Identification of Seniors at Risk; ISAR+, positive ISAR screening (score ≥ 2); ISAR-, negative ISAR screening (score < 2); CGA abnormal, impairment of ADL plus another domain of the CGA; CKD, chronic kidney disease
