This is the final video in a four-part series. Click the links on the left side of this page if you missed any of the previous videos.

Learning Objectives: At the end of this activity, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the benefits for patients and providers of providing primary care at home.
  • Identify some of the scheduling and other logistical considerations in creating an effective home-based primary care program.

Description: In the last video of this four-part series, providers and patients explore the importance of expanding primary care beyond the walls of the clinic, particularly when it comes to reaching people with involved disabilities. The video covers some of the differences that clinicians might expect from a home-based practice, ranging from practical considerations such as scheduling, to more subtle changes such as a shift in the doctor-patient relationship.

Discussion Questions:

  1. The video notes that a relatively small percentage of people receive primary care at home. What needs to change to make home-based primary care more widespread?
  2. Would you like to provide (or receive) care in a home-based setting? Why or why not?
