"I found the forum to be very relevant and helpful given the current concerns facing PWP's. It was enlightening to hear about the various options for progression. The speakers were obviously very knowledgeable and shared insightful information on improving assessments and selecting appropriate presenting problems for our patients. I was very impressed with the forum overall and look forward to attending again in the future!."
