The Transcultural theory is a middle-range theory because it focuses on race, ethnicity, and culture. McEwen and Wills (2014) describes middle-range theories that are specific, encompasses a limited number of concepts, and aspect of the real world. Leininger’s sunrise model illustrates the transcultural dimensions of cultural assessments and therapies (McEwen ; Wills, 2014, p. 233). Many graduate students and scholars have used Leininger’s theory as a ground for research. One group adopted her theory and examined the health beliefs of Latin subgroups exclusively related to Diabetes Mellitus type 2 (McEwen & Wills, 2014, p. 233). Other strengths of the theory are clear-cut, and testable hypotheses can be obtained.
