Comprehensive Newborn Care: a Bibliometric Literature Review
Objective: To analyse the scientific production of comprehensive newborn health care in primary care. Method: A bibliometric study with a quantitative approach using a sample consisting of 27 studies (two from the Virtual Health Library and 25 from PUBMED) published between 2005 and 2015. Results: The highest number of publications on this subject were published in 2010, and the country with the most publications was the United States. Comprehensive newborn care was summarised and presented in the form of a concept map. Conclusions: The bibliometric indicators showed that perinatal care must be provided in primary care; however, there were gaps in the scientific literature regarding approaches related to this care. This work is expected to contribute by increasing health professionals' understanding of comprehensive newborn care by disseminating scientific production and promoting discussion on the subject, thereby reducing child mortality.Keywords: Comprehensive health care; Newborn; Primary Health Care; Bibliometric indicators.
