"Views on exercise: A grounded theory exploration of the creation of exercise perceptions in Hispanic children with asthma ." Hispanic Health Care International 15, no. 2 (June 2017): 71-78.

dc.description.abstractIntroduction: There is a large prevalence of asthma, particularly among Hispanic children. Although physical activity is a good way to manage asthma, more Hispanic children with asthma lack activity than their healthy classmates. Given this, the purpose of this study was to explore the development of exercise perceptions in Hispanic children with asthma and to further develop an existing explanatory theory. Method: Grounded theory was the approach for the study. Grounded theory illuminated components of exercise perceptions from participants. Participants included Hispanic children with asthma, their families, and professionals who work with Hispanic children with asthma ( n = 29). Results: Findings from this study supported the previously identified grounded theory called The Process of Creating Perceptions of Exercise. In addition, two new concepts (cultural and peer influences) were identified that further explain the category of exercise influences. Conclusion: The revised theory can be used to assist in developing nursing interventions aimed at increasing exercise participation among Hispanic children with asthma.en_US
