As in other partnerships, the Individualized Written Rehabilitation Plan (IWRP) should clearly define the roles and responsibilities of all partners. Review policies related to disability-specific responsibilities to ensure that the consumer is fully informed and the IWRP is developed in compliance with policy and the approved service array.

The role of the consumer is largely defined on the IWRP and must be adequately described so that the consumer can follow through successfully. The specific activities or tasks that the consumer is expected to complete must be objective and measurable; for example, acquire documented evidence that the consumer regularly attends physical therapy.
