dc.description.abstractPurpose: Cancer is the leading cause of death among Hispanics/Latinos in the USA. Latina cancer survivors experience higher symptom burden than other cancer survivors. A healthy lifestyle can decrease recurrent cancer risk, increase well-being, and may decrease symptom burden in cancer survivors. The purpose of this study was to explore the barriers and facilitators for adopting healthy lifestyle behaviors among Latina cancer survivors. Methods: Using the Health Belief Model as the theoretical framework, qualitative descriptive methodology was used for secondary analysis of data from a previously conducted randomized clinical trial. Transcripts from the telephone health coaching calls, analyzed in the original language (English or Spanish), were used for this qualitative analysis. Results: Intervention telephone call transcript data from Latina cancer survivors (n = 14) were analyzed. Major themes were as follows: Perceived susceptibility to other chronic illnesses, perceived benefits of a healthy lifestyle, and perceived barriers and facilitators of adopting a healthy lifestyle. Lack of knowledge about healthy lifestyle behaviors could prevent participants from adopting a healthy lifestyle; gaining new knowledge about healthy lifestyle behaviors was a facilitator for changing lifestyle. Family responsibility and wearable technology could both prevent and motivate the participants to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Conclusion: Developing culturally appropriate interventions for Latina cancer survivors is vital to decrease symptom burden and health risks, as well as improve health outcomes in this population.en_US
