Factors that affect United States Latina immigrants’ perception of preventative care of STIs and contraceptive use: An Integrative Review of Literature Daniela Moody Linda Graf, DNP, CNM, WHNP-C, APN, RN Background: Latina immigrants are the largest growing minority group in the United States yet they have limited access to healthcare providers who can accurately educate the women how to best prevent transmission of STIs and also provide accurate information on various types of contraceptive use. Objectives: This integrative review examined current research to identify factors that affect a Latina immigrant’s perception on preventative care for STIs and contraceptive use. Methods: This integrative review used relevant evidence to answer the specific question using a narrative analysis to explain the compilation of literature and findings of varied studies. Studies were organized, coded, summarized and in classified in a table per their category. Findings: This study found that acculturation and language affected Latina immigrants’ perception of obtaining preventive care for STIs and contraceptive use, shown by higher rates of HPV and other STIs. A lack of education or a lack of information also increased the lack of preventive for STIs and contraceptive use within the Latina immigrant population. Conclusions: Due to the evidence for this integrative review, the nursing community needs to provide more outreach with accurate information regarding STI transmission and contraceptive use for this population.
