Healthcare Culture and Its Implications for Minority Nurses

Ekta Srinivasa, PhD, RN

This keynote session will briefly review aspects of healthcare as it relates to minorities in the United States. Minority healthcare nurses experience deficiencies in our current system, such as a work environment that treats them differently than their Caucasian counterparts. We will discuss the experiences that impact the quality of care provided. Elements that have a bearing on care stem from the healthcare environment. The levels of violence minorities are exposed to, including workplace bullying influence their ability to perform.  Resources currently available are inadequate to manage this.  When individuals are faced with workplace violence, access to legal assistance can be a challenge and a burden. While many institutions have put policies in place to address workplace violence, underlying biases of the leadership will color the degree of actual assistance or intervention that is in place to mitigate these events. We will discuss some mitigation strategies aimed at improving the healthcare workplace environment for minorities.

Concurrent Sessions #1

W101: Community Collaboration through Health Literacy

MaryAnn Perez-Brescia, PhD, MSN, RN

Dr. Jessica Planas, PhD, RN, MPH, CHES

Maria Krol, PhD, RN, MPH, CHES

Adolescents may have less interaction with the health care system than adults, but as they grow, become more involved in their own care. They frequently utilize technology to access health information but may not be able to decipher which sources are credible. Limited health literacy studies have focused on adolescents, but existing data suggest that disparities exist (Ghaddar et al., 2012). The autonomy that comes with adolescence often includes independence in making health decisions, emphasizing this as a crucial stage of development, as they learn skills they will use throughout adulthood (Bennett et al., 2012).

W102: Creating an Environment for Behavior Change Among Women

Rose Iris Gonzalez

Wellness, an integration of physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing, is a conscious and deliberate process of adapting a lifestyle through awareness and informed decision-making. This study presents the qualitative findings of ‘Operation Change’, a community-based program implemented in San Diego, CA and designed to empower women, who are obese and have osteoarthritis, to improve their overall wellness through self-monitoring.

W103: A  Survey of Advance Practice Provider Student Wellbeing

Dr. Adrienne Martinez-Hollingsworth, PhD, MSN, RN, PHN

Dr. Linda Kim

Dr. Lisa Barkley

Covid-19 has exacerbated health disparities while straining Advance Practice Providers (APPs) on the frontlines and highlighting the need for studies exploring provider experiences among those who reflect/represent the communities they serve. This report describes self-identified wellbeing needs among a cohort of predominantly Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) APP trainees working in low-income, predominantly Latino/x communities during the Covid-19 pandemic.

W104: Advocacy for Undergraduate Human Trafficking Education

Ms. Lou Rios, MSN, RN, SANE-C

This abstract will show the findings of a rapid quality improvement project aimed at increasing the reported self-perception of undergraduate nursing students’ ability to identify victims of human trafficking. The findings will be used to advocate for the adoption of human trafficking education into the undergraduate nursing curriculum.

3:30 PM - 4:15 PM  

Concurrent Sessions #2

W201: Spanish Health Education Interprofessional Simulation

Dr. Amelia Perez

Hispanics make up the largest racial/ethnic minority group in the US, accounting for 18% of the total population. Seventy three percent of Hispanics living in the US speak Spanish at home. While many of them are bilingual, 38% of the Hispanic population in the US mainly uses Spanish as their primary language. Patient satisfaction and understanding of health information among Spanish-speaking Hispanics is significantly higher when able to communicate in their primary language with the healthcare provider.

W202: Hispanic women’s views of neural tube defect prevention

Dr. Roxanne Mirabel-Beltran, PhD, RN

Katherine Monogue-Rines, Student

Dr. Pamela K. Donohue

Preliminary study results challenge the finding that Hispanic women experience a higher number of newborns with NTD due to consuming non-fortified imported products. However, Hispanic women’s acceptance to continue a pregnancy with a terminal diagnosis of NTD may be playing an important role in the high prevalence of NTD among Hispanic women living in the United States. Additional research is needed to explore ethnic/racial disparities in the incidence of NTD at time of diagnosis rather than at birth.

W203: Educating Hispanics during Pandemic: Sickle Cell Disease

Dr. Angie Millan, DNP, RN, FAAN

Dr. Juana Ferrerosa, PhD, MSN, PHN, RN 

Sickle Cell Anemia (SCD) is one of the most common genetic disorders in the U.S. It impacts approximately 7,000 people in California and about 90,000 in the US. The sickle cell disease is more common in people of African descent, but can also be found in Hispanic-Americans. In fact, 1 in 1630 Hispanic births are children with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). Yet, remarkably little is known about the Hispanic population and its impact by SCD on the community.

4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

General Session

NAHN's 4 Decades of History

Dr. Jennifer Figueroa-Delgado

NAHN has a vibrant and interesting history that deserves to be collected, archived, and shared with the world. Therefore, the presentation will highlight its members and leaders through a mixed media approach that will include interviews, photographs, narration, printed matter, audio-visual materials, and so on. The purpose of this presentation is educational in nature and meant to inspire members to submit and expand the current but modest collection of historical documents and information.

W301: InfoSalud: Advancing Latinx Health Education

Dr. Lisa Aponte-Soto, PHD

Susana Gonzalez, MHA, MSN, RN,CNML

Monica J. Rodriguez, MA

The Latinx community accounts for 30% of the Chicago population with Puerto Ricans comprising 18%. Puerto Ricans are disproportionately affected by higher rates of morbidity and mortality across most health indicators. As the second largest Latinx subgroup in the U.S., it is important to understand and respond to the unique health needs of the Puerto Rican diaspora in relation to a history of colonization and oppression. This presentation demonstrates the benefits and effectiveness of a community-academic partnership model to develop and implement a four-month community health education campaign with the goal of improving the health outcomes of the Chicago Latinx/Puerto Rican community, particularly the LGBTQIA+ and aging adults.

W302: COVID-19 behaviors and Beliefs Toward Immunizations

Norma G. Cuellar, PhD, RN, FAAN

There is a disproportionate number of Latinos who have COVID-19. Latinos make up 28.8% of all COVID cases with 34% mortality rate. These numbers are indicative of the health inequities for Latinos in our country. Despite the disproportionate numbers, Latinos make up a low percentage of persons vaccinated. It is uncertain if behaviors and beliefs of immunizations among Latinxs is influenced by social determinants of health. The purpose of this study was to examine how social determinants of health predict COVID-19 behaviors and beliefs toward immunization among Latinxs.

W303: Stress, Resilience and Syndemics Among Latinx Immigrants

Dr. Rosa Gonzalez-Guarda, PhD, MPH, RN, CPH, FAAN

Dr. Brian McCabe, PHD

Dr. Gabriela Nagy, PHD

Despite arriving in the U.S. with a wealth of resilience and a relative health advantage (i.e., the Immigrant Paradox), the health of Latinx immigrants decays over time in the U.S. This decay in health is particularly evident in the syndemic conditions (co-occurring epidemics) of substance abuse, intimate partner violence, HIV, and mental health problems that cluster among historically marginalized communities. Though some has been written regarding how the process of immigration and subsequent adaptation can expose Latinx immigrants to chronic and compounding challenges (i.e., acculturation stress), less is known about how innate resilience factors and these stressors influence syndemic outcomes

2:00 PM - 2:45 PM

Concurrent Sessions #4

W401: Exploring Nursing Students’ Medical Spanish Proficiency

Dr. Diana Cavazos, PhD, MSN, RN

Patients with nurses that speak their language are better able to comply with their care regimen. As the COVID19 pandemic imposed an unparalleled and extraordinary public health emergency, facing the worst pandemic humanity has seen in a century, patients found themselves separated from their loved ones who usually provided comfort in a world that spoke a different language from theirs.

Training Spanish-speaking nursing students to achieve adequate medical Spanish proficiency empowers them to improve healthcare encounters with limited English proficiency (LEP) Hispanic patients. This project explored perceptions of Spanish-speaking nursing students about participation in training bilingual nursing students to adequately communicate with LEP patients in any clinical setting and providing them with the requirements to test for a national certification for medical interpreters.

W402: Migratory Status and Physical Health of Latinx Immigrants

Dr. Allison Stafford, PhD RN

Aneri Tanna, Undergraduate Student

Karina Moreno Bueno, Undergraduate Student

Previous research has demonstrated that undocumented Latinx immigrants in the US report worse self-reported physical health than documented immigrants. However, less is known about the mechanisms that explain this relationship. The purpose of this study was to determine if immigration-related stress and healthcare-related stress in the US explain the relationship between migratory status and self-reported physical health among Latinx immigrants in North Carolina.

W403: Tired Heroes: Puerto Rican Nurses' COVID-19 Stressors

Dr. Carmen Alvarez, PhD, CRNP, CNM

COVID-19 has taken an exceptional toll on frontline health care workers. In order to prevent the worsening of health disparities from COVID-19 and from future epidemics/pandemics, we need a workforce that functions at the highest levels to address both medical and non-medical needs, particularly for underserved and marginalized populations. Understanding the experiences of frontline workers during this pandemic is critical for identifying solutions to mitigate burnout and enhance support in future crises.

W501: Reflections: BAMA - L Nursing Workforce Diversity Program

Ms. Patricia Rojas, BSN, RN – PhD Student

There is a shortage of Latino nurses in the workforce. With over 60 million Latinos residing in the United States (18% of the population), less than 9% of all nurses are Latinos (U.S. Department of Labor, 2019; Pew Research Center, 2019). With an increasingly diversified U.S. population, promoting nursing as a profession within the Latino community is more important than ever.

W502: Experiences of Acculturative Stress in Latinx Immigrants

Dr. Gabriela Nagy,

Ms. Paulina Ruiz

Despite the challenges in their home countries (pre-migration), during the migration journey (peri-migration), and following resettlement in the US (post-migration), Latinx immigrants evidence a relative health advantage compared to US-born counterparts - a phenomenon known as the Immigrant Paradox. However, as Latinx immigrants navigate the process of immigration and subsequent adaptation, they are exposed to a myriad of acculturative stressors, which can include language barriers, family separation/reunification, legal challenges, and discrimination, among others.

W503: Trauma, Depression and Alcohol Use Among Guatemalan Mayas

Dr. Eugenia Millender, PhD, RN, MS, PMHNP, CDE, FAAN

Dr. Casey Hall

The purpose of this presentation is to explore symptoms of depression and alcohol use disparities by gender among Guatemalan Mayas created by a lifespan of diverse social-cultural traumas as highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic that disproportionally impacted Hispanic, and Indigenous communities. Past negative experiences can be easily triggered or exacerbated by policies targeting minority and immigrant populations, such as the expansion of deportation, and attack on sanctuary cities. Mayas, having experienced genocide, exile, and severe poverty, are at high risk for the consequences of different types of traumas that continually resurface through the current fear of an uncertain future. Little is known about the mental health and alcohol use status of this population.
