All regulated healthcare professionals (RHPA, 1991) have Standards of Practice that require them to report their concerns when they are unable to meet their accountabilities set out by their regulatory body. ONA has developed the Professional Responsibility and Workload (PRW) process to resolve professional practice and workload issues. Completing the Professional Responsibility Workload Report Form (PRWRF) fulfills the member’s obligations to their College.
