  1. Barriers to health care for Vietnamese refugees.

    Article - En anglais

    This study was undertaken to determine the dynamics of why Vietnamese refugees may not optimally use existing health services in the United States.

    A random sample of 75 refugees was interviewed by a bilingual translator.

    Multivariate analysis of variance was used to analyze the effects of time of arrival on whether the following are barriers to care: not having a translator available in health care facilities, feeling understood by health care providers, being able to understand the written and verbal instructions of providers, and not having a primary provider.

    The hypothesis, that time-of-arrival groups would differ significantly on these variables, was supported (F=4.81; df=8,136; P<.001).
