About this app

The World Health Organization's ICOPE Handbook App is a digital application that supports the implementation of the Integrated Care for Older People approach (ICOPE). The interactive app guides health and social care workers step-by-step through the process of screening older people at risk of care dependency in the community, undertaking a person-centred assessment of older people’s health and social care needs, and designing a personalised care plan. The app can also be used by governments and organisations to train health and social care workers to deliver personalised care.

ICOPE is an evidence-based approach developed by WHO that helps health systems support Healthy Ageing through the design and implementation of a person-centred and coordinated model of care. ICOPE emphasises early intervention in priority health conditions associated with declines in older people's physical and mental capacities, which include: mobility limitations, malnutrition, visual impairment and hearing loss, cognitive decline, and depressive symptoms.
