Context and Culture Matter: Employing Community Based Participatory Research in Understanding Rx Medication in the Eastside of Los Angeles
Studies on health attitudes and behaviors are of particular importance and suggest that ethnic background plays a significant role in health-related practices. Using a CBPR approach, Latino/a community members from Los Angeles were interviewed to better understand how culture and community context influence risk, availability/accessibility, and consumption of prescription and over-the-counter medications, identify how age and gender-specific culture influence Latino medications use and misuse, and use findings to develop culturally responsive prevention strategies for use and misuse. Findings shed light on ethnic-centered health care, ethno-based attitudes and beliefs about prevention and connections among Latinos, including acculturation influences as they relate to health and wellness, and how other factors influence their health lifestyle choices.
At the end of the training session, participants will have a better understanding of how culture (e.g., worldview, values) and community context influence risk, availability/accessibility, and consumption of prescription (Rx) and over-the-counter medications (OTC) for the Latino/a community from the Eastside of Los Angeles, be able to identify how age and gender-specific culture influence Rx and OTC use and misuse, and understand how findings will be used to develop culturally responsive prevention strategies for Rx and OTC use and misuse for the Latino/a community from the Eastside of Los Angeles.
