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.  

Learning Objectives:

After this presentation, the participant will be able to:

•       Articulate at least one major gap in the healthcare system as it relates to minorities.

•       Define two key aspects of the minority healthcare worker’s experience.

•       State one major challenge with the current resources available.

•       Identity an intervention strategy for improving the culture within a healthcare organization

Concurrent Sessions #1

▪ W101: Community Collaboration through Health Literacy

MaryAnn Perez-Brescia, Dr. Jessica Planas, Maria Krol

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, 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

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.

Upon completion, the participant will be able to:

1. Define human trafficking and its effect on public health.

2. Understand the role of the nursing in combatting human trafficking.

3. Advocate for the adoption of human trafficking education at the undergraduate nursing level

▪ W301: InfoSalud: Advancing Latinx Health Education

▪ W302: COVID-19 behaviors and Beliefs Toward Immunizations

Norma Cueller

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

Concurrent Sessions #4

▪ W401: Exploring Nursing Students’ Medical Spanish Proficiency

Dr. Diana Cavazos

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.

▪ W501: Reflections: BAMA - L Nursing Workforce Diversity Program

Ms. Patricia Rojas

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.
