Tuberculosis and the under reporting of cases that evolved to death: Integrative Literature Review
International Journal of Advanced Engineering Research and Science
Objective: This study aims to analyze the trends in scientific production on deaths from tuberculosis and the underreporting of cases, through the analysis of the behavior of notifications from health information systems. MethodIt is an integrative review of the literature by searching the databases, with the time frame between the years 2010 to 2020. For the treatment of the data, the technique of content analysis was used, with categorization of the findings. Eleven complete original articles
... e original articles were selected that answer the central question of the research, which were grouped in tables according to author, title, journal, year of publication, indexation base, objectives, methodologies and evidence. Results: The International Journal of Advanced Engineering Research and Science (IJAERS) [Vol-7, Issue-12, Dec-2020] https://dx.doi.org/10.22161/ijaers.712.14 ISSN: 2349-6495(P) | 2456-1908(O) www.ijaers.com Page | 94 analysis of the literature made it possible to elaborate three categories based on relevant points, namely: Category 1-Linkage between health information systems; Surveillance of the Death of Tuberculosis; 2 -Tuberculosis Death Surveillance Actions. Studies indicate that a large part of deaths from tuberculosis are not included in the Notifiable Diseases Information System (SINAN) and Mortality Information System (SIM).Conclusion: This study shows the need to intensify the actions of tuberculosis death surveillance to increase the completeness of information systems, reduce underreporting and the number of unresolved cases, train and supervise the performance of the Primary Health Care health teams and the quality of filling out death certificates and compulsory notification, in addition to intensifying disease control strategies.
