      Authors: Melanie Lutenbacher, Tonya Elkins, Mary S. Dietrich
      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction: The Maternal Infant Health Outreach Worker (MIHOW) program, an early childhood home visiting program, uses community health workers (CHWs) to improve health outcomes in underserved communities. Methods: This randomized clinical trial evaluated the impact of MIHOW's use of CHWs on selected maternal/infant outcomes up to 15 months postpartum. We hypothesized outcomes would be better among Hispanic women receiving MIHOW compared to a similar group of women eligible for MIHOW who received only a minimal education intervention (MEI). The study also expanded earlier research testing MIHOW's efficacy among Hispanic families using criteria set forth by federal guidelines. Women living in middle Tennessee enrolled during pregnancy (≤26 weeks gestation) and continued through 15 months postpartum. Results: Enrolled women (N = 132) were randomly assigned, with 110 women completing the study (MEI = 53; MIHOW = 57). Positive and statistically significant (p

           Border Region: A Critical Ethnography

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lauren A. Acosta, Marylyn Morris McEwen
      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction: Numerous undocumented immigrant women in the United States have survived rape, and many have experienced physical and psychological consequences. Although rape disclosure can facilitate early intervention and improve health outcomes, most undocumented immigrant women do not disclose rape, and little is known about their post-rape experiences. Methods: This critical ethnography explored the post-rape experiences of undocumented immigrant women of Mexican (UIWM) origin living in the U.S. Mexico border region. Data collection and analysis were guided by Carspecken's framework for critical qualitative research. Six women, who identified as UIWM participated in the study. Each was interviewed using a semistructured approach. Results: Interview data revealed three domains: Glimpses of Support, Barrier After Barrier, and Overcoming. In accordance with Carspecken's framework, a theoretical lens was applied to these domains. The application of Feminist Intersectional Theory and Standpoint Theory united the domains into the theme Struggling to Heal. Conclusion: This study suggests that the marginalization of these survivors detrimentally impacts their post-rape experiences and describes the intersections of multiple forces on their experiences, including the cultural and sociopolitical context of the border region. This study lays the foundation for future research aimed at mitigating disclosure and help-seeking barriers for this marginalized group.

      Authors: Jennifer C. Molokwu, Alok Dwivedi, Adam Alomari, Jesus Guzman, Navkiran Shokar
      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Hispanic women have the highest rates of incident cervical cancer in the United States (U.S.) and are 1.9 times more likely to die from cervical cancer than non-Hispanic Whites. Objective: Assess the impact of text message reminders on cervical cancer screening attendance and completion. Design: Pragmatic non-randomized study design using propensity matched analysis. Setting: Community-dwelling low-income females in the U.S./Mexico border community. A total of 2,255 mainly Hispanic females aged 21–65. Methods: Text message reminders in addition to usual care (telephone call reminders). Results: After adjusting for significant factors and propensity score matching, individuals in the text reminder group had 11% lower screening incidence than individuals without text reminders (risk difference [RD] = −0.11, 95% CI: −0.16, −0.05; p

  • Street Nursing: Teaching and Improving Community Health

      Authors: Diana M. Cavazos
      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Living on the streets continues to be a traumatic and dangerous lifestyle that creates many challenges in society, especially challenges related to community health and health care. In San Antonio, Texas, half of the unhoused population is Hispanic, aligning with national reports that document how Hispanics/Latinxs are overrepresented in the unhoused communities. Street Medicine™ programs are surfacing nationwide and around the world, frequently as medical schools’ initiatives, to provide medical care to unhoused populations, providing a unique learning opportunity for medical students and other health care disciplines, including Nursing. UT Health Street Nursing organization was formed in the context of a clinical rotation experience for the Population-Focused Health course while supporting and collaborating with Street Medicine SA. This initiative exposes nursing students to the reality of not having a place to live and the struggles vulnerable populations face to access and navigate health care services, discovering how Latinos generally have less access to quality health care and suffer from poor health.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Karen R. Fowler, Melissa Anne Wholeben
      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction: The purpose of the research was to examine the relationship between Hispanic nursing students’ trauma experiences and the influence on resilience and learning outcomes. Methods: The study used quantitative, correlational methods to analyze the data. The survey tool included the Adverse Childhood Experience International Questionnaire, a resilience scale, and results from a standardized academic exam. Data Analysis was conducted using descriptive statistics and multivariate correlation analysis. Results: The results provide evidence of a negative relationship between trauma levels and resilience. As students’ trauma scores increased their level of resilience decreased. No observed significant relationship between the Hispanic nursing student’s lived trauma and learning outcomes was noted. Conclusion: This study will help in understanding the stressors that might affect students and help educators to create environments within the classroom that will allow students to overcome these stressors. Evidence identified that Hispanic nursing students experienced multiple traumatic childhood events. Through the study of traumatic experiences in nursing students, we garner insights into the prevalence of adverse experiences in this population. Additionally, given projections of a nursing shortage, evidence that lends insights to ensure Hispanic nursing student success will ultimately benefit nursing and patient care.

      Authors: Elizabeth N. Diaz, Joanna A. Pineda, Qun Le, Julie A. Wright, Mary L. Greaney, Ana Cristina Lindsay
      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Background: Data suggest that Latinx preschool-age children are at increased risk of obesity. The fastest-growing Latinx population in the United States originates from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, also known as the Northern Triangle countries. Purpose: To describe how Central American parents from the Northern Triangle countries perceive the importance of energy balance-related behaviors (EBRBs), their preferred sources to obtain information about EBRBs, and to assess whether these differ by parent's gender and country of the nativity. Methods: Cross-sectional survey. Results: Seventy-four parents with at least one child between 2 and 5 years of age participated in the study. More than half were immigrants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras and were classified as having low acculturation. Mothers perceived consuming>5 fruits and vegetables daily, limiting sugar-sweetened beverages consumption, and having

      Authors: Dakota Daniel, Adeline Wickerham, Elizabeth A. Fitzgerald, Jennifer Kue
      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction: Nicaragua has one of the highest cervical cancer death rates (19.4 per 100,000) compared to other Central American countries. This integrative review of the literature synthesizes cervical cancer prevention interventions in Nicaragua. Methods: The literature search was performed through Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Cochrane Library, Embase, PubMed, and Scopus. The six articles included in this integrative review were appraised using the Quality Assessment Tool for Quantitative Studies (QAQTS). Results: Greater knowledge of Pap smears, the human papillomavirus (HPV), and cervical cancer was significantly associated with positive screening beliefs. Barriers to cervical cancer screening included access to Pap smears, preference for female providers, and the length of time to receive screening results and treatment. The probability of having a Pap smear was 94% higher among those who had a recent doctor's visit compared to those who had not. While clinician samples are more accurate in detecting HPV or cervical cancer, self-sampling was stated by the participants to be preferred. Conclusion: A focus on the higher efficacy of clinician sampling and providing more factual information about cervical cancer and its screening through trusted community-based efforts, such as charlas, would be more likely to encourage testing and thereby reduce the rate of cervical cancer in Nicaragua.

      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction: Latinx immigrants who migrate to the United States (US) as young children are more likely to experience depression than those who migrate later in life. Our purpose is to test three models that may explain the relationship between age of immigration and depressive symptoms among Latinx immigrants. Methods: A secondary analysis of baseline data from a community-based, longitudinal study of Latinx young adults in the US Southeast was conducted. Latinx immigrants who migrated before the age of 19 years (n = 157) were included, and path analysis was conducted. Results: Age of immigration and depressive symptoms were negatively related (b = −0.19, S = 0.08, p = .015), while acculturative stress and depressive symptoms were positively related (b = 0.04, SE = 0.01, p

  • Call for Inclusive and Diverse Suicide Prevention Strategies Among Cuban
           Americans: A Brief Report

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Francisco Brenes, Federico Henriquez, Pedro Cachon
      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Suicide is a leading cause of death in Hispanics globally and nationally. Intentional death rates were higher in Cuba than Mexico in 2016. In the United States (US), suicide mortality rates were greater among Hispanics in rural than urban areas from 2001 to 2015. Although the US lacks suicide research in undocumented Hispanics, few studies have reported increased risk in immigrants. Limited research also indicates higher intentional death rates in Cuban Americans compared with other Hispanic American subgroups. However, suicide prevention strategies for at-risk Cuban Americans are lacking due to a scarcity of research among diverse Hispanics. Researchers could collaborate with health care providers to develop effective suicide prevention methods for Cuban Americans with suicidal problems. This report provides an overview of suicidal behavior in Hispanic Americans with a focus on Cuban Americans. Gaps related to the research topic, as well as recommendations for practice, research, and health policy, are provided in this report.

      Introduction: Determine the effectiveness of a diabetes text message intervention to improve diabetes outcomes in Latino adults at a free clinic in the southeastern United States. Methods: A pre–post, one-group design was used with a convenience sample (n = 24) of Latino adults with type 2 diabetes and A1C ≥ 7 who consented to participate. Over 8 weeks, participants were sent 23 educational and motivational text messages that were based on the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) 7 self-care tasks and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes Mellitus (DM). Diabetes knowledge, self-efficacy, self-care, and A1C were measured. Results: Diabetes knowledge, self-efficacy, self-care, and A1C improved after 8 weeks. Statistically significant results (p

      Introduction: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) prevalence continues to increase among Hispanic/Latino adults. The purpose of this study was to explore and analyze literature on culturally tailored nutrition interventions to identify how to best implement a whole food plant-based (WFPB) culinary intervention to improve health outcomes for Hispanic/Latino adults at risk for developing or diagnosed with T2DM. Methods: A methodological review was performed by searching PubMed, CINAHL Complete, PsycINFO, and Food Science and Technology Abstracts. Inclusion criteria consisted of peer-reviewed articles in English, from January 2009 to January 2020, using the search terms: “Hispanic adults or Latino adults”, “culturally tailored or ethnic”, “diabetes”, “dietary or nutrition”, “intervention”, and “vegan or plant based”. Studies included adults at risk for/diagnosed with T2DM. Results: Of 1,474 articles retrieved, 15 met the inclusion criteria. Four main themes were identified: participant interest, feasibility of intervention, development and implementation of intervention, and impact of the intervention. Conclusion: Further research should focus on culturally tailored nutrition interventions and use of a WFPB diet to reduce risk for T2DM in Hispanic/Latino adults. Continued discussion should be patient- and community-centered to promote equity, health, and disease prevention through the use of culturally tailored methods and design, not only limited to curriculum and language.

      Introduction: Racial/ethnic minority communities are underrepresented in research. Medical mistrust and mistreatment, discrimination, and a lack of diverse research workforce may influence recruitment and engagement. Engaging Latinx immigrants for research presents unique recruitment challenges, especially for biobehavioral research which is not well explored. The purpose of this paper is to examine the effect of targeted strategies for recruiting young adult, Latinx immigrants. Methods: Recruitment occurred from 2018 to 2019 in an ongoing, longitudinal, community-engaged research study examining risk and resilience factors for health outcomes in Latinx immigrants. Strategies included active recruitment (e.g., community-based events and public events) and passive recruitment (e.g., word-of-mouth and radio and flyer advertisements). Logistic regression analysis was conducted to examine the influence of type of recruitment on participant enrollment. Results: The study enrolled 391 participants of 701 interested individuals (55%). Greater odds of enrollment were among participants recruited through radio and flyer advertisements (adjusted odds ratio [AOR]=2.90, 95%CI [1.59, 5.27], p=.001), word-of-mouth (AOR=2.50, 95% CI [1.55, 4.03], p

      Abstract: Hispanic Health Care International, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction: Interest in the return of research results has been increasing; however, little is known about how Hispanics/Latinos perceive and value receiving results. This study examined differences among Hispanics/Latinos by education and income in the experience and expectations about the return of research results, perceived value of specific types of information, and the least and most valuable specific information. Method: Retrospective observational design using a cross-sectional national survey sample of Hispanics/Latinos (n = 327). Results: Higher educational attainment was positively associated with the expectation to receive research results, likelihood to participate in research if given study findings, and likelihood to trust researchers if given results. Higher income was positively associated with the perceived value of getting results. Respondents with higher education specifically perceived greater value in information about how lifestyle and genetics affect their risk of disease, how genetics affect how they respond to medications, their ancestry, available clinical trials near them, and how to connect with other study participants. Respondents with higher income perceived greater value in information about how genetics affect their risk of disease and how they respond to medications. Conclusion: The findings offer important insights for planning research initiatives and for developing culturally targeted educational materials for Hispanics/Latinos.
