Telehealth nurses deliver disease management programs to culturally diverse populations, including Hispanic patients. Disease management programs focus on chronic conditions such as diabetes, which are increasing in prevalence. The CDC predicts that the number of Hispanic people with diabetes will rise nearly six-fold by 2050. The nurses who deliver these programs via the telephone need training focused on culturally competent care. The purpose of this project is to review and synthesize information in order to develop cultural competence training for telehealth nurses providing disease management programs to Hispanic patients.
