dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this guide is to provide health care professionals in the United States with a basic introduction to the Hispanic/Latino community and some of their cultural beliefs and health care practices. This guide is designed to help health care providers establish more effective patient-provider relationships with their Latino patients by utilizing the information provided to design health care interventions that are more congruent with the belief systems and practices of the patients they are serving. Gaining an understanding of Latino health beliefs can be instrumental in decreasing the disproportionate numbers of Latinos who are dying from disease that can be prevented by modifying risky behaviors.en
