PS1.2: Developing a Seating Intervention for Older Veterans

We describe barriers and facilitators in positioning older Veterans in wheelchairs in two VA Community Living Centers (CLC). We used focused interviews (n=40), and purposive snowball sampling of direct care providers of wheelchair positioning: nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses, registered nurses, and kinesiotherapists. Data were placed into Atlas.ti software 7.1.7 and coded using content analysis with concurrent memoing. Codes were synthesized into themes and reliability checked by another investigator.
