This consultation closed on Monday, April 3, 2023. About this consultation The College has proposed significant changes to the Registration…
Record Keeping Standard for Midwives
The changes to the Record Keeping Standard for Midwives are intended to update its content and provide enough information for midwives to understand what their responsibilities are to document in, and maintain, the client record.
Second Birth Attendant Standard
This standard was revised so it is achievable by all midwives by requiring midwives work with second birth attendants who are competent in NRP rather than certified in NRP.
