Advocating for those with a disability in Ontario has become important to me. This post explains why I am supporting the work of Spinal Cord Injury Ontario (SCIO).
For many years, I have worked at the intersection of pressure injuries, safe patient handling, and spinal cord injury. In short, this led me to project manage policy work for SCIO on access and affordability of medical supplies. This was described in a previous case study. The relationship continued and I am chairing an SCIO advocacy committee. This is a two-pronged approach. One aspect is financing the advocacy work and a second in communicating the message for the needs of those with a disability.
