The Center for the Advancement of Health Disparities Research (CAHDR) is a collaborative partnership between the University of Washington and the University of Hawaii at Manoa Schools of Nursing funded by NINR. The Center awards funding for pilot studies to research variables associated with health disparities. These studies have created viable strategies to improve nursing interventions aimed at eliminating health disparities across all population groups. The investigators utilize the Center's conceptual framework that provides a pathway to issue domains and related variables relevant for health disparities research. For example, "Promoting Equal Access to Long-Term Care Service Utilization Among Diverse Ethnic Groups in Hawaii," by Dr. Pierson and "Korean American Parenting and Children's Conduct Problem Behaviors," by Dr. Kim, used the framework as a guide to identify that transportation needs, chore services and language barriers are definite obstacles to health care. These studies elucidate that it is paramount to use appropriate linguistically and culturally sensitive nursing interventions. The framework's domains include such issues as Determinants of Health, Population Health, and Policy and System Supports. The Center is actively collaborating with the communities we serve, working to increase the number of minority nurse researchers, and developing innovation in health disparities research. The Center is particularly interested in the use of participatory action research methods to implement culturally sensitive and innovative research methods that will benefit communities. The CAHDR has provided an avenue for disseminating and sharing knowledge through presentations, lectures and posters. This poster is an important vehicle to report on the research of 12 pilot studies that have given us a new understanding of the contributions nursing can make in health disparities research.
