Abstract: AIM: To gain insight into the core interventions in home nursing. METHODS: In this descriptive, quantitative, cross-sectional study two questionnaires, based on the nursing interventions classification, were used to collect data from 501 nurses working in an organization for home nursing in Belgium. Response rate was 88%. RESULTS: The self-care assistance, (im)mobility and (psycho)social interventions are the most frequently performed interventions in home nursing, but they are performed and can only be interpreted in combination with other, more technical interventions. Therefore, these interventions can be considered the core interventions in home nursing.
