Ask The Network Surveys (ATNs) are short surveys which give members the unique opportunity to ask our network of members, and non-members, about a topic of their choice, on any area of interest or practice. 

Our dedicated ATN coordinator will format the questions to yield responses, analyse the responses and complete a review of responses which will be sent to the commissioner and respondents, as well as being made available in our members area. Members can view all our ATN results in the members area here.

PARN members have access to two free ATNs per year within the membership benefits, to view our full membership benefits click here!
