Aims: This symposium illustrates how researchers conduct culturally-sensitive, community-based investigations to assess barriers of health care access, experienced by vulnerable populations who suffer with health disparities, both domestically in California and globally. The investigators are faculty who direct the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR)-funded T32 on Health Disparities of Vulnerable Populations and co-direct or are affiliated with the NINR-funded Center for Vulnerable Populations (CVPR) and their doctoral and post-doctoral students. The focus is to illuminate barriers to health care access among vulnerable populations and to shed light on nursing strategies which can positively impact health care outcomes. Overview of the Studies: Heilemann begins the domestic side of presentations by using constructivist grounded theory methodology to explore and describe the perceptions of second generation Latinas of low income in need of mental health care for depression. Maliski, using a cross-sectional design, engages culturally diverse men of low income who are diagnosed with prostate cancer and in search of effective symptom management and quality of life. Marlow, using hermeneutic phenomenology, reflects on male parolees as they encounter community reengagement and the need for quality health care interface. Pieters, using grounded theory methodology, describes the culturally diverse experiences of older women diagnosed with breast cancer and who engage the health care system during and after their prescribed treatment. Finally, Nyamathi, extends health care access barriers from the domestic to the global sphere in sharing perceptions and perceptions of HIV positive mothers living with HIV in Chennai, India using qualitative methodology. Implications: Exploration of health care access among culturally diverse populations in California and globally has implications for nursing practice. The results of this symposium highlight the importance of health care professionals in assessing barriers which impact care-seeking of vulnerable populations and build the knowledge base for best practices among populations experiencing health disparities.
