Description: Newborn mortality is a priority public health topic. Many newborn deaths occur at household level and would be preventable if care was sought in time. Counselling caretakers about danger signs that may indicate a serious illness of the newborn aims to promote adequate care seeking behaviour. It is acknowledged that research about counselling strategies is missing. The objective of this study is to evaluate current counselling practices on danger signs and to elaborate recommendations .
The literature review focuses on seventeen studies that were published in English and online between 2000 and 2015. After identifying relevant content using a freetext search strategy, the data was grouped into different components which define the counselling process: Entry points for counselling, content and material of counselling, counsellors and recipients, data collection and results and linkages to other stakeholders. A meta-synthesis was used to analyse the aggregated data in a qualitative way.
