Abstract

Socioeconomic barriers to accessing and receiving health services contributes to poor health outcomes experienced by immigrants. The purpose of the project is to discover individual and structural barriers facing the immigrants in the United States to access and utilize health care services. It presents an immigrant patient who was seen at the primary clinical practice, discusses differential diagnoses, and formulates final diagnoses with comprehensive treatment plan. The theoretical framework includes Roy’s adaptation model (RAM) from Sister Callista Roy to answer the research question: What are the effects of social determinants of health as a barrier on immigrants’ access to and utilization of health care services? A search was conducted of the following databases: CINAHL, Medline with Full text, TRIP, and Nursing & Allied Health Premium during the years 2016-2021. This project thoroughly appraised and synthesized 20 pieces of evidence. Financial and insurance barriers to health care was identified as major structural problems which require comprehensive policy and pragmatic solutions. Providing culturally competent and diverse providers, utilizing language services, and incorporating collaborative model in practice are some of the strategies to better serve the immigrants. This project supports Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) to provide holistic care to patient by assessing socioeconomic factors affecting patient’s compliance to treatment. Findings from this project can be extended to nonimmigrants with health care disparities. Further clinical inquiry regarding the role of FNPs in immigrants’ health with specific common medical issues are needed to improve the outcome of immigrants living in host countries.
