Abstract

to evaluate patient and health service characteristics associated with tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis delay. this was a cross-sectional study conducted in São José do Rio Preto-SP in 2009; the 'entry point' and 'access to diagnosis' dimensions of the Primary Care Assessment Tool (PCAT) were selected to analyze patient and HS delay. 99 TB patients were included in the study; the median time related to patient and HS delay was 15 days; delay in seeking services was lower among smokers (PR= 0.71; 95%CI 0.54;0.94) and alcohol users (PR=0.75; 95%CI 0.57;0.99); TB diagnosis delay was related to not being able to get a medical appointment on the same day (PR=1.63; 95%CI 1.22;2.18), TB not being suspected (PR=2.07; 95%CI 1.18;3.62) and seeking care in health services four times or more (PR=2.34; 95%CI 1.55;3.53). delay in seeking care was lower among smokers and alcohol users; shortcomings in access to diagnosis characterized health services delay.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 10 October 2016.
All research outputs
#12,437,633
of 15,650,802 outputs
Outputs from Epidemiologia e Serviços de Saúde
#136
of 252 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#192,912
of 271,087 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Epidemiologia e Serviços de Saúde
#5
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,650,802 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 252 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 271,087 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
