INTRODUCTION: Breast cancer mortality rates among African American (AA) women are at 29.2 deaths per 100,000 persons compared with 20.6 deaths per 100,000 persons among Caucasian women. Regular mammography screening may significantly reduce breast cancer mortality and narrow this disparity. This study guided by PEN-3 model aims to explore the relationships and expectations domain and identify perceptions, enablers, and nurturers of regular mammography among AA women. METHOD: As part of an intervention study, in-depth interviews were conducted with 39 AA women recruited from the emergency department of a public university hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Latinas have a greater chance of dying from diabetes than non-Latina Whites. As a population group, the literature has shown that Latinas do not meet physical activity (PA) guidelines. Motivational interviewing (MI) is a patient-centered counseling method that promotes self-efficacy for behavior change. The purpose of the study was to examine the feasibility of using MI/PA counseling for self-management of type 2 diabetes mellitus with Latinas. METHODS: Latinas ( n = 12) were recruited from an occupational program in Southern California...

INTRODUCTION: The European Union receives one third of the world's migrant population who cross the Mediterranean Sea in small boats and arrive illegally in Europe. Irregular migrants (IMs) are persons who do not have legal permission, documentation, or refugee status and are not authorized to enter or stay in a given country. More than half a million IMs arrive in the European Union by sea creating serious public health issues in Greece, Italy, and Spain, thereby needing emergency care...

This difference could be attributed to the subculture but is not conclusive. This study aimed to explore the experiences of nursing staff communicating with Singaporean Chinese with dementia in Singapore. METHOD: A focused ethnographic study was conducted in a long-term care setting for people with dementia, where data were obtained using nonparticipant observations and semistructured interviews...

INTRODUCTION: In the past 30 years, the prevalence of diabetes in China has increased from 0.67% to 11.6%. Self-management behaviors (SMBs) are significant to improve health outcomes for diabetics. However, little is known about self-management experiences of Chinese diabetic patients. The purpose of this study was to explore family factors affecting SMBs. METHODOLOGY: A qualitative descriptive study was used. Purposive samples were recruited from Chinese communities...

METHOD: We applied a qualitative descriptive design in summer 2017. Interviews were conducted in Spanish with 10 Mayan caregivers, who were primarily female, between ages 19 and 50 years, in Guatemala...

INTRODUCTION: Almost 830 women die daily in childbirth with 550 of those deaths occurring in sub-Saharan Africa. This region has the highest maternal mortality rates in the world with 546 deaths per 100,000 live births. Research must focus on understanding cultural beliefs and practices to improve maternal health outcomes. The purpose of this review is to provide evidence of relevant cultural beliefs and the impact on birth outcomes for women in sub-Saharan Africa. METHOD: Using PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) guidelines, the literature focused on 25 articles that defined, directly or indirectly, associations of cultural values, beliefs, and lifeways to pregnancy and birth from the perspective of women of childbearing age...
