Establish a National Training Center on Interdisciplinary, Translational Hispanic Drug Abuse Research
1) The impact of different types of training on competence and adherence for Hispanics serving counselors.
2) The impact on adoption of a Hispanic-serving provider’s philosophy of change and problem conceptualization; and
3) Perceptions regarding the usefulness and limitations of manualized treatment. The impact on adoption of having Latinos counselors and manual developers collaborate on adaptations.
2) Testing the generalizability of previous findings with Hispanic serving agencies.
Social marketing - a consumer-oriented approach to dissemination – would help bridge the gap.
Aguilar-Gaxiola et al. (2002), working with Mexican Americans in California, report on evidence-based processes to educate the community, mobilize action, translate research for multiple stakeholders, and to effect regional policy changes that directly impact services.
Research must be conducted on the unique needs of Hispanic-serving substance abuse prevention and treatment providers, and study the effectiveness of matching innovations to those needs.
Research on marketing strategies that reach multiple stakeholders (e.g., community agencies, state and county-level funders) relevant to Hispanics.
Research must also focus on effective strategies for mobilizing public and political pressures to facilitate the adoption of innovation in the Hispanic community.
There are indications that the overall NIH training endeavor, especially those directed at minority individuals, is also making very slow progress overall. The number of NIH R01 grants received by underrepresented minorities rose slowly from 154 (2.8% of the total) in 1997 to 344 (5% of the total) in 2001.
Recommendation 1. Develop a comprehensive progress report for existing NIDA training programs that target underrepresented minorities, with a focus on Hispanics.
Recommendation 2. Establish a NIDA National Drug Abuse and Addiction Health Research mentorship program devoted to training future Hispanic researchers.
Recommendation 3. Encourage NIDA staff to share information about successful Hispanic program initiatives with other NIH Institutes.
Recommendation 4. Encourage and strengthen new and existing networks and partnerships to enhance science-training goals that exceed NIDA’s training resources.
