Abstract

The research focusing on pain in Hispanic/Latino populations suggests that their cultural values and beliefs of stoicism, fatalism, the importance of family, spirituality, and folk healing have an impact on their pain experience. Based on research findings this article suggests strategies nurses can use to assess and suggest pain management interventions for patients of Hispanic/Latino culture.
