Incidence and Prevalence of Morbidity and Mortality From Sensitive Conditions to Primary Health Care in Adult Men: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis Protocol
Background: Scientific studies on human health are not remote and show that mortality in this population is increasing. Although male morbidity and mortality rates have a considerable weight in national and international epidemiological profiles, the presence of men in primary health care services is lower than that of women. Many injuries could be avoided if men regularly carried out the first preventive measures. Sensitive Conditions to Primary Care are consolidated as an important marker of
... mportant marker of access to health services and the resolution capacity of Primary Care. In this systematic review, the objective is to identify what is known about the prevalence and / or incidence of Sensitive Conditions to Primary Care in adult men.Methods: We will identify the studies through systematic research in PUBMED-MEDLINE, SCOPUS, Web of Science, Embase, Cochrane, BDTD and OpenGrey. The quality assessment of retrieved articles will be carried out using the critical assessment tools of the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI). The quantitative synthesis of the data will be carried out if the studies are homogeneous and provide adequate result data for meta-analysis. Otherwise, the data will be synthesized, using the narrative synthesis approach.Discussion: This review will explore theprevalenceand / orincidenceofSensitiveConditionstoprimarycare (prevalenceofhospitalizations; incidenceofhospitalizationsand deaths from ACSC) in adultmenandwillact as a usefulsource for researchers, policymakersand stakeholders whendevelopingandimplementinginterventions for thatgroup.
