[Research Presentation] Effective and culturally appropriate strategies for promoting condom use within the Hispanic/Latino community are spotlighted because of high prevalence of HIV and STD infections and unwanted pregnancies. This study examines both the usefulness of promotoras (community healthcare workers) to teach Hispanic/Latino women in the community how STDs are transmitted and how using a male condom can reduce morbidity. The setting was a family practice clinic in a Southwest metropolitan city serving a Hispanic/Latino community. Ten promotoras were recruited and taught from an approved promotora curriculum. Based on Leininger's Sunrise Model, the promotora curriculum used culturally appropriate activities designed to increase self-efficacy in using condoms. Sample size was supported based on a review of the literature that included studies using promotoras for health screening and teaching groups of six through 10 women. Promotoras received four two-hour training sessions. Promotoras were given the CUSES at pre-test, post-test and at six weeks using the Condom Use Self-Efficacy Scale (CUSES) a 28-item self-report questionnaireá The higher the score, the greater the understanding of condom use self-efficacy. Data analyses used one-way repeated measures ANOVA.
