Abstract:

Providing preventative health education to refugee groups presents challenges due to language barriers, limited literacy, educational resources, and time constraints.  Purpose:  pilot an electronic audio-visual Burmese language diabetes educational tool (BDET) designed for low literacy Burmese speaking patients. Sample and setting: eleven adult Burmese speaking patients at a family practice clinic. Methods and measures: qualitative descriptive design utilizing a semi-structured 10 item survey, delivered via interpreter to obtain participant perceptions and opinions of BDET. Findings: BDET provided novel diabetes information in an acceptable format. Participants perceive diabetes to be a very serious disease, however, perceived personal risk of diabetes and intentions of making lifestyle changes yielded mixed responses. This pilot demonstrates that the BDET is acceptable to Burmese immigrants and serves as an example of an efficient, low-cost method of providing health education in a clinic setting when language and cultural barriers exist.
