Abstract

The Latino population is the fastest growing ethnically diverse group in the United States, but U.S. healthcare studies report poorer health status in this population than in non-Latinos. Using Campinha-Bacote's Inventory for Assessing the Process of Cultural Competence Among Healthcare Professionals-Revised (IAPCC-R, 2003), a single-session pilot educational program to enhance culturally responsive home care nursing to Latinos resulted in a 27% increase in the nurse participant cultural competency levels.
