This forum will pose several challenging questions about the roles and responsibilities of all the team members involved in the purchase and repair experience of a person with a disability who is relying on wheeled mobility as the primary means of mobility. Questions will explore areas of overlap to include letters of justification, adjustments/ modification and repair of equipment, tracking of the funding process and customer service. The Forum will explore the differences of opinion that arise when hot button statements are posed to the audience.
