The objective of this study was to assess the effect of the implementation of training programs for Primary Care Physicians for improving their clinical practice as regards the prevention of traffic accidents in the elderly. To do this, a systematic review was carried out following the PRISMA strategy. A total of 1,677 works were reviewed, of which only 5 were included because they met the inclusion criteria. Although none of the works was of an experimental type with a control group, it can be concluded that there is evidence that an adequate training in this subject by physicians improves their skills in the identification of elderly risk drivers, due to their pathologies and/or the use of drugs, as well as their level of confidence to communicate to the elderly and/or their families the need for restriction or, if necessary, the definitive cessation of driving.
