Awareness of Hispanic cultural issues in the health care setting.

da Silva GC.

In view of the increasing numbers of Hispanics in this country, American health care professionals need to be aware of cultural differences between themselves and their Hispanic patients, especially where health practices are concerned. This paper deals with some of the health-related traditions, values, and beliefs held by various groups of Hispanic extraction in this country. A number of culture-specific disease entities and treatment modes are discussed, with special reference to patient behaviors and attitudes. Implications for health care delivery to Hispanic individuals and families are outlined, and suggestions for service providers are put forth.
