Theoretical models that guide nursing practice with vulnerable populations need to be broad enough to incorporate the complex health and social environments that intersect in the provision of improving the health and healthcare of vulnerable populations. Purpose: The purpose of this symposium is to discuss the effectiveness of theoretical models that underpin intervention research conducted by the UCLA NINR-funded T-32 group to enhance practice interventions with selected vulnerable populations. Overview of the Studies: Nyamathi, using a health seeking and coping paradigm, discusses the impact of a culturally appropriate intervention designed to promote the health of homeless adults who have latent TB and are living in a sheltered environment. Koniak-Griffin explores the relationship among several theoretical constructs from social cognitive theory and the theory of reasoned action with subsequent sexual risk behaviors from a study of adolescent mothers in an HIV prevention program. Berg utilizes the Vulnerable Populations mode to explore resource availability, relative risk and health status among Latino parents whose children have asthma. Conclusions/Implications: Findings from these studies offer implications regarding the theoretical constructs underlying interventions to enhance the health and health care of a variety of vulnerable populations. Evaluation of the constructs from various theories that guided these nursing interventions can lead to the continued development and utilization of effective theories and interventions that will build the knowledge base for best practices among vulnerable populations. This area of study was supported by a grant from the NIH/NINR, T32 007077.
