Orpington Prognostic Score (OPS)

Purpose of the measure

The Orpington Prognostic Score (OPS), also known as Orpington Prognostic Scale, was developed from the Edinburgh Prognostic Score (Prescott, Garraway, & Akhtar, 1982) and the Hodkinson’s Mental Test Score (Qureshi & Hodkinson, 1974) as a means to evaluate stroke severity. The OPS enables clinicians and researchers to stratify clients into a good, intermediate or poor prognosis group by using established cut-offs. The OPS is also very effective in predicting functional outcomes (Kalra & Crome, 1993).
