Nurse practitioner reports
Send us the Nurse Practitioner’s Report Form 8NP within three business days of your patient’s first visit.
Please use the Nurse Practitioner’s Report if any of the following apply:
- Your patient’s claim is for a back injury, hernia, shoulder or knee strain/spring, occupational disease (e.g. repetitive strain injury, cancer, work-related asthma, or work-related dermatitis), or mental disorder.
- Your patient’s injury doesn’t meet these criteria but we request a Nurse Practitioner’s Report Form.
- If a Nurse Practitioner’s Report should have been sent based on these criteria, but was not.
If you need help completing your report, refer to the Nurse Practitioner’s Form 8NP/11NP Reference Guide.
In some cases, you will need to submit a progress report for a patient using Nurse Practitioner’s Form 8NP/11NP Reference Guide. This report should be used if any of the following apply:
- Your patient is not recovering as expected since you submitted your initial report, and the patient’s treatment and recovery plan needs to be changed.
- Your patient's duration of disability is beyond usual recovery norms.
- Your patient is ready for return-to-work intervention.
At the top of each form, you'll find instructions for completing and submitting it to us. Type your information and complete all required sections.
