Description

Background: People of Hispanic and Latino origin have a higher risk for developing type two diabetes and consequently developing further health compromising complications compared to any other ethnic groups.

Objectives:The purpose of this integrative literature review was to identify effective elements addressed in evidence-based culturally appropriate interventions for the prevention of type two diabetes in the Hispanic and Latino population.

Method: An integrative literature review was performed using CINAHL, ProQuest, and Academic Search Complete. The searches were completed using the following keywords: diabetes or diabetic, culturally competent care or cultural appropriateness or culturally appropriate or cultural sensitivity or culturally sensitive, education or health knowledge or health literacy or health beliefs, Hispanics or Latinos.

Results:Three effective elements were identified in the culturally tailored interventions developed for the prevention of diabetes in the Hispanic and Latino population. Those included promotores, diet, and support.

Conclusion: Further studies are needed to identify more successful, culturally appropriate interventions with the use of effective elements to prevent diabetes in the Hispanic and Latino population. Nurses and other health care providers should provide culturally congruent care.
