PURPOSES/AIMS: Clinical application of research findings that impact quality care for vulnerable populations is dependent upon the effectiveness of interventions that are applied in clinical settings, and these interventions need to be assessed for their specificity to persons who would most benefit from the intervention, the appropriateness of the settings, and the intervention's intended effects. In treatment theory, the critical inputs specify the nature and dose of the intervention necessary to produce the expected effects. The purpose of this report is to discuss the utility of a theoretical model, social support, and the explication of differing critical inputs across generations of Latinas, to improve walking in clinical research studies.
RATIONALE/CONCEPTUAL BASIS/BACKGROUND: Few examinations of social support have addressed the cultural specificity or cultural relevance of the framework in diverse, particularly Latina, groups. In much of the research that has targeted social support, there is no evaluation if the support intervention actually changed perception of support, network size or provision of support.
METHODS: To elicit the operationalization of the critical inputs of social support for older and younger Latinas in the development of a walking intervention, visual METHODS: were used to explore the mechanisms including the social and culturally specific context of dietary intake and physical activity in older Latinas. The operationalization of the critical inputs for younger Latinas was elicited through individual interviews, expert review of investigators in Latina health, and critical analysis of intervention components by a Latina Community Health Advisory Board, Prosumer Mujeres.
RESULTS: Key issues in operationalizing the critical inputs of social support across generations of Latinas were found. Instrumental support differed in the types of tangible support offered and received such as infant/child advice and support tools for younger Latinas compared to more 'self' supportive advice and tools desired by older Latinas. Emotional support for younger Latinas included family support from those who could provide significant instrumental support, while older Latinas favored peer support and involvement.
IMPLICATIONS: Differential operationalization of critical inputs of a theory-based intervention can contribute to increased cultural relevance of community based interventions in hard-to-reach diverse subgroups.
