Author information

School of Nursing, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, USA.


Information on the efficacy of wellness protocols in culturally diverse populations is meager. A study was conducted to develop culturally appropriate guidelines to prevent alcohol and drug abuse. Five groups of women participated in focus groups; based on the participants' perceptions, Put Prevention into Practice guidelines for the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse were adapted for each group. Further research studies evaluating these adapted guidelines and developing additional culturally appropriate tools are needed.
