The aim of this exploratory-descriptive study was to explore and describe perceptions of the utility and ease of use of personal emergency response systems (PERS) among older adults who are aging in place. This study explored the question of "What is the meaning of a PERS use for a functionally-impaired older adult?" Using an exploratory-descriptive qualitative design, 14 subjects were recruited in Queens, NY, who met the study's eligibility through the selection criteria. A 9-question in-person interview guide was used to conduct the face-to-face, audio-taped, semi-structured interviews in an effort to gather information on the participants' experiences with using a PERS...

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan raised national awareness about lead- tainted drinking water, particularly its harm to children and pregnant and lactating women. However, according to recent findings, there may be another by-product of this man-made crisis. Failure to use anticorrosive material in the water, a practice mandated by the 1978 Clean Water Act, is being linked to an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease, an illness detrimental primarily to adults over 65 years of age. While Legionnaires' disease is relatively rare, it is also likely to remain undiagnosed...

Type 2 diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States and this disease disproportionately affects African-Americans and other minorities. Diabetes self-management education has been shown through research to help patients achieve at-goal HgbA1c levels leading to a decrease in complications; however, patients do not attend these classes as much as they should. The creation of a telephone follow-up plan can be an option to improve glycemic control for the primary care clinician caring for uncontrolled Type 2 diabetic African-American females...

The demand for nursing faculty with doctoral degrees has prompted universities to devise strategies to hasten doctoral preparation. Insufficient preparation of nursing faculty negatively impacted the ability of colleges of nursing to enroll qualified applicants. In 2011, 75,000 applicants were turned away (AACN, 2012). Interview data from 11 participants were analyzed for themes and structure of meanings that led to a description of the essence of the phenomenon. Six related themes revealed the experiences of simultaneously being a nurse faculty member and PhD student...

Exclusionary behaviors can be detrimental to the health and well-being of faculty in the workplace. When colleagues are judged by their peers because of the color of their skin, the language they speak, their gender, or who they choose to love (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, asexual, or questioning), affected faculty are left emotionally and physically vulnerable. Institutions of higher learning must set standards of zero tolerance for faculty-to-faculty incivility. With standards taken from each faculty discipline, codes of conduct can be implemented not only at a departmental level, but also throughout the educational system...

Nursing has evolved over the past five decades in propagating the development of theoretical and empirical evidence through the application of nursing theories. The objective of this commentary is to stimulate scholarly debate focused on the development, application, and adaptation of nursing theory by nurse scientists, its relevance in the cross-cultural contexts, and to discuss future directions with a call to action using Leininger's seminal work on Culture Care Theory. The implicit nature of nursing theories preclude the optimal use and application in cross- cultural contexts because of the limitations in achieving conceptual, semantic, and operational equivalence...

Hypertension (HTN) continues to be one of the most preventable diseases that have global impact. The prevalence of HTN in African-Americans is considered to be among the highest in the world. This investigation sought to determine whether a church-based self-management program would aid African-American adults (18 years of age and above) in reducing their blood pressure (BP). The theoretical foundation was the Health Belief Model. The clinical question was: Will a church-based American Heart Association (AHA) program on BP self-management decrease BP in African-American adults (aged 18 and above) who belong to a local Christian church? The quantitative methodology and pretest-posttest single group design were used in this investigation...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death among African-American women in the United States. Accurate CVD risk perception may motivate these women to participate in health-promoting behaviors; however, perceived risk may not align with objective CVD risk. Our objective was to examine CVD risk perception, risk factors, and objective estimated risk (based on Framingham scores). This was a secondary data analysis of data collected from a 12-month lifestyle PA intervention conducted with 281 African-American women...

Lower participation rates in the African-American population are not limited to medical research. Extant research reveals African-American students also participate at lower rates than other racial groups on college and university surveys. Students in medical and health professions programs are routinely surveyed to investigate students' perspectives about the educational curriculum, social and cultural environment, quality of faculty and resources, etc. The results attained from these assessments often carry some of the greatest weight in guiding educational curricula, programs, and policy...

The purpose of this study was to provide information regarding hair maintenance that would increase physical activity among African-American women. A descriptive study design was used, along with Survey Monkey to obtain online responses from African-American female participants over the age of 18 that were associated with four predominately African-American social organizations. Participants were asked to rate the "ease of use" of 8 hairstyles commonly worn by Black or African-American women living in the United States as it related to three physical activity (PA) intensity categories: light to moderate, vigorous, and water-based physical activity...

The purpose of this qualitative study was to describe the lived experience of African-American informal caregivers of family members with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD) in a home environment. Using a qualitative, phenomenological approach, a purposive sample of 16 African-American informal caregivers completed an in-depth interview that lasted from 30 to 60 minutes. Four themes emerged: (a) a sense of obligation, (b) an arduous journey, (c) sentinel events, and (d) faith in God. Findings indicated that caregivers needed to be well-informed concerning the demands of caregiving and needed more assistance with the task of delivering care...

The objective of this qualitative study was to explore the experience of being African-American, obese, female, and residing in an urban area. Critical Social Theory of Black Feminist Thought guided the study framework and study questions. Within this framework, African-American women are multidimensional human beings with attitudes, habits, and personalities influenced by their religious beliefs, family, school, friends, and racial history. Interview data were obtained from 10 women and analyzed using qualitative techniques...

The pilot study described here was a test of interventions designed to enhance long-term disease management of African-Americans with type 2 diabetes in faith-based organizations. A quasi-experimental design based on 46 participants was used comparing three interventions: guided imagery, group counseling, and routine care. Unexpectedly, the number of self-reported hypoglycemic episodes significantly increased in the Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) group, depressive symptoms significantly increased in the guided imagery group, and the mean hemoglobin A1c values did not significantly differ for any group...

Physical inactivity can have major implications for cardiovascular disease and diabetes, which are leading causes of morbidity among African-American women. Recruiting in rural populations can present challenges and strategies that work in one community but may not be successful in another community. This study examined the feasibility, acceptability, and implementation of community-based screening using an abbreviated Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) Risk Factor self-report survey in a geographic region where these data were previously unavailable...

Diabetes is a complex, chronic illness requiring continuous medical care with multifactorial risk-reduction strategies for appropriate glycemic control. Type 2 diabetes remains a global epidemic secondary to increases in physical inactivity and obesity. While many populations are at risk, African-Americans bear a disproportionate burden from diabetes and its complications. Diabetes self-management education (DSME) is essential to successful diabetes treatment and complication prevention. However, diabetes management requires daily patient involvement and skills...

REVIEW
Barbara A Fowler, Joyce Newman Giger
Numerous researchers have examined the serious consequences of food insecurity and food deserts affecting the nutritional health of poor or low-income African-American women and their families. Food insecurity is defined as having limited or uncertain capacityfor acquiring sufficient, safe, and nutritious food at all times to meet one's dietary needs, while food deserts refer to economically and socially-deprived inner city areas with inadequate food supply that are often inhabited by low-income groups. Researchers have found that despite the capacity of community-level resources such as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) supporting healthy nutrition, food insecurity persists among some recipients of both nutritional resources...
