This mixed-methods research project explored knowledge and perceptions of nursing staff about functional maintenance programs in a skilled-nursing facility and evaluated the effects of increased nursing-staff education. The study consisted of pre- and postsurvey and individual interviews. The results showed an increase in scores for both knowledge and perception questions following an in-service training session. Interviews revealed themes related to program benefits and barriers to implementation.
