This study was done to synthesize current evidence in determining the best practice for improving the cultural competence of undergraduate nursing students towards the LGBT population. This integrative review included a systematic literature search of 12 databases. The analysis revealed a total of 14 resources to be of the highest level and quality. It was concluded that a multi-method approach including formal educational strategies, contact with LGBT individuals and interactive experiences may best improve nursing students' LGBT cultural competence...

Breast cancer is the number two leading cause of death in women all over the world and is often associated with poor quality of life (QOL). The positive and negative QOL factors influence the overall health and well-being of those affected with invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC). This literature review was structured to identify and understand both the positive and negative QOL factors throughout breast cancer treatment, as well as post breast cancer treatment. Systemic searches were done of three databases to gather data in breast cancer treatment from 2010-2015...

REVIEW
Kafuli Agbemenu
This research was conducted to identify the acculturation and health behaviors in the African Immigrant population, which is presently living in the United States. Ten studies met the criteria and included health behaviors of status, access to health care, psychiatric services, prostate cancer, morbidity and mortality, HIV knowledge and beliefs, perceptions of suicide, smoking, and obesity. Acculturation was measured using the most common social constructs that influenced the health behaviors of nativity, English (language proficiency), age at immigration, education and socioeconomic status, religion, age at immigration, and length of stay in the U...

Terry D Ward, Tiffany Morris
Critical thinking is essential in the practice of the nurse generalist, today. Nursing faculty is frequently trying to identify teaching strategies in promoting critical thinking and engaging students in active learning. To close the gap between critical thinking and student success, a school in the south east United States implemented the use of the 'think like a nurse initiative" for incoming junior nursing students. Faculty collaborated to adopt the fundamental and essential nursing concepts for nursing students to support thinking like a nurse...

Ethnic minorities in the United States have a higher prevalence of obesity, with higher levels reported in Latinos/Hispanics. A qualitative study was done to understand perceptions of obesity and identify factors that may enhance the attractiveness of a behavioral weight-loss intervention in the Latino community. Weight loss trials designed to target the Latino/Hispanic population may benefit by considering the Latino/Hispanic perception of the problem, the barriers to weight loss, and for study participation that may be specific to this population...

Global health issues are concerns of all public health officials throughout the world. This entails reviewing aspects such as the impact of poverty and the lack of access to quality health care, ignored global killers such as Diseases (Infectious diseases-Malaria, HIV/AIDS), Natural Disasters (Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Floods, and Armed Conflict), Health in the Media, and the Involvement of Pharmaceutical Corporations and Medical Research. These issues are challenges to many needless deaths. Global initiatives are not advancing as they should, such as access to drugs and medications, which some are political...

The purpose of this study is to build a grounded theory of the process of diagnosis, treatment, and coping in African-American women diagnosed with stage 1-3 breast cancer, and identifying factors that may lead to resiliency in these women. Factors promoting resiliency identified by the participants included having a voice, self-attunement, spirituality, pragmatism, and keeping positive. Based on the findings, the researchers suggest health care providers work to create patient-centered healthcare,facilities for cancer treatment, validate patient self-agency, encourage communion, and hire staff that have been previously diagnosed with breast cancer to act as mentors...

Jacqueline S Marshall, Cynthia M Arciad
Worldwide, in developed and underdeveloped coun- tries, breast cancer is the most frequently occurring cancer among women with approximately 1.3 million diagnoses annu- ally. In like manner, it is the most commonly occurring type of cancer among women in the United States. With higher rates of breast cancer mortality, African- American women (AAW) and Afro-Caribbean women (ACW) remain at the forefront of concerns regarding suboptimal breast health outcomes, when compared to their Caucasian counterparts. The purpose of this study is to examine the influence of a spiritually-guided inter- vention on breast self-care attitudes...

Cultural and Linguistic Competence (CALC) involves the idea that to eliminate long standing disparities in our society, providers need to be able to work effectively cross- culturally. This study describes the evaluation of a 3.5 hour CALC training with the objective of improving human service providers' knowledge, attitudes, and comfort in serving diverse groups. Pre- and post-training questionnaires were completed by 317 participants at 21 trainings in a state in which over 90% of the population is white...

A Rush Ryan, Basil H Aboul-Enein
The New Testament is regarded as the authoritative spiritual guidance for all practicing Christians. The relationship between religion and health continues to exert a significant role in an individual's, health, behavior, and lifestyle. This study aims at establishing a link between the Scriptural and early theological tradition of the body, from Jesus Christ to the early church, with an eye toward identifying themes that can help promote health and well-being among Christian communities today.

These studies are grouped according to expectations of personal control expectations of support from partner/others/family; expectations of carel behavior from providers such as nurses, doctors, and/or midwives; expectations about the health of the baby; and expectations about pain in childbirth. Discussed are the findings and the role that Western culture in medicine, power and privilege are noted in providing care to these women...

REVIEW
Lisa Whitfield-Harris, Joan Such Lockhart
Diversity in academia requires attention, especially with the expected increase in minority populations in the United States (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, (AACN) 2014). Despite theoretical papers that suggest that several challenges are encountered by minority faculty employed in predominately White institutions, a dearth of research on this topic has been published. The purpose of this literature review was to analyze the published research that addressed the workplace environment of African-American faculty employed in predominately White institutions...
