Description

A problematic assumption underpinning health care interventions is that proven effectiveness in one group of patients and/or within one cultural context makes an intervention applicable to all patients, regardless of sociodemographic or cultural differences. Alternatively, the application of a culturally and family centred care lens promotes the health and well-being of patients living with cardiovascular disease and their families through a respectful family-professional partnership. It honours the strengths, cultures, traditions, and expertise that everyone brings to this relationship. Culturally and family centred care is a standard of practice which results in high quality services. In this special issue of the Journal of Nursing Research and Practice we are calling for papers focusing on cardiovascular disease (CVD) research and practice, designed specifically to investigate how a particular ethic group has approached the management of cardiovascular disease to improve outcomes within that population. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Reviews (e.g. systematic, metasynthesis, integrative) of culturally centred cardiac research
  • Family and culturally centred research and practice that address the issue of obesity
  • Epidemiology papers comparing CVD outcomes by ethnicity
  • Culturally centred approaches to CVD risk factor management
  • Illness perception using a cultural lens
  • Medication perception and adherence within different ethnic groups
  • Culturally centred approaches to depression management in relation to CVD
