Abstract
Home visits are essential for promoting the ability to remain at home and prevent nursing home admissions ; general practitioners play a key role in the development of this specific ambulatory care. Although the frequency of home visits seems to be overall decreasing in recent years, they remain essential, given the expected demographic changes. This is why education on home visits should be introduced in the training of our students during early years. However, there is a gap in literature regarding the optimal number and length of home visits, as well as the kind of groups most likely to benefit from them and thus more research is needed to enlighten these aspects of home visits.
