The College’s Record Keeping Standard was revised at the December 2022 Council meeting. The new standard comes into effect on April 1, 2023.
Our proposal is safe, provides cost-savings, will benefit midwifery clients and their families, and reduces the burden on Ontario’s health care system as a whole.
The Registration Regulation has been revised to meet three main objectives: Set requirements to register safe, competent, and ethical midwives; ensure fair registration practices; and reflect modern midwifery practice.
Council meetings are open to midwives and the general public. They are currently streamed for observers by video conference.
The College has created a new resource for midwives about the complaints process and you can read it here. This resource is intended to provide information, so midwives know what to expect if they are the subject of a complaint or report.
All midwives should have received a Quality Assurance email in late November 2022, confirming when your next report is due. Please email email@example.com if you did not receive this email or if you have questions.
A midwife is caring for a client planning a home birth. At 35 weeks gestation the client tells their midwife they want to labour and birth on their own, without any interventions, and they will not call a midwife to attend.
The issue contains information about our most recent Council meeting, the launch of the Orientation and Assessment Pilot Program, revisions to the College’s Record Keeping Standard, a new resource for Midwives on complaints and investigations, practice advice, and more
The Midwifery Scope of Practice was implemented on June 1, 2021. Now that midwives have been working with this new document for 18 months, we want to hear about how it’s working for you
The College of Midwives of Ontario wishes you a very happy and healthy holiday season, with best wishes for 2023.…
