Culturally appropriate care for pregnant Latina women who are victims of domestic violence.

Author information

The John Hopkins University School of Nursing, Baltimore, MD, USA.


Latina women who are pregnant and experiencing domestic violence face many barriers to accessing care and finding culturally appropriate services. These barriers are entwined in a complex web of social, cultural, economic, political, and legal issues. Leininger's cultural care model is presented as a framework to discuss culturally appropriate assessment of Latina women in various health care settings. Recommendations are made for the role of nurses in primary prevention interventions at the individual and community levels.
