Perceptions of Newly Immigrated Hispanics toward Needs for and Barriers to Cultural Competent Health Care in the Greater Omaha Area

Purpose: Describe newly immigrated Hispanics' perceptions of their needs for and barriers to cultural competent health care in the greater Omaha area. Conceptual Framework: The Malama Model of Caring contributes components needed to study health care disparities of underserved, special populations. The cornerstones of the Malama framework include: community partnerships, empirically derived services, conceptually based nursing practices, and cultural competency. Methods: A qualitative study recruited a non-probability sampling of 44 newly immigrated Hispanics residing in the Omaha area. Six focus groups discussions were conducted in Spanish. Focus group data was tape-recorded, transcribed in Spanish, translated into English and followed by five levels of data analysis: coding, categorizing, establishing internal consistency, identification of themes and validation with community. Results: Five global themes are proposed for primary health care nursing service application: (1) the paradoxical dilemma of being a Latino(a) immigrant, (2) unique culture of being a Latino(a) immigrant, (3) crisis of cultural adaptation, (4) family as a metaphor of the Latino(a) spirit and (5) the desire for Latino (a) style health care services. Implications: The conceptually organized perceptions of the newly immigrated Hispanics contained in five global themes guide the development of culturally congruent nursing protocols that integrate cultural competency with primary health care nursing services.
