Understanding INR and warfarin

Was wondering if someone could help me. My mum is on warfarin as she had blood clots in her lungs. She is currently taking 7mg and her INR is 1.7.
My friend also is on warfarin has the same INR as my mum but she is on 13.5mg.
This is worrying my mum as she doesn't understand how the dosage is worked out etc and shes concerned that maybe she is on wrong dose or even my friend could be.
I would be really grateful if someone could explain it or even tell my sites that will explain it,so i can reassure my mum that she is being treated right.
