Abstract

This project was conducted to provide a basis for the development of practice guidelines for care of the diabetic immigrant client. Based on recommendations from the integrative literature review from published qualitative research studies, these guidelines will provide a basis to aid the Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) in working alongside culturally diverse immigrant patients with diabetes. Leininger’s Theory of Cultural Care Diversity and Universality will be the underlying theory for the guideline development. The results of this project will lay the foundation for working with this population by providing guidelines for culturally appropriate care to individuals, and with further research, could inform practice for working with culturally diverse communities as a whole.
