About this consultation
As part of the College’s commitment to risk-based regulation, we have developed a rigorous approach to policy making to ensure policy decisions are based on a proper evaluation of risk, solid evidence, and a thorough analysis of options and impacts. This process ensures that regulatory tools are not adopted as the default solution, but are introduced to mitigate risk when other non-regulatory options are unable to deliver the desired results.
Consultation with midwives, midwifery and regulatory organizations, and the public is an essential part of our policy development process, and in keeping with our guiding principles of accountability and transparency.
While the College has a Clinical Education and Student Supervision standard in place, it was last revised in 2017 and various aspects are outdated or contain unnecessary information. The College now has an opportunity to revise the standard to ensure it reflects current and relevant content.
We are requesting feedback about revisions to the Clinical Education and Student Supervision Standard.
- The existing Clinical Education and Student Supervision Standard.
- The proposed Clinical Student Supervision Standard.
- Consider: To what extent should a midwife’s professional conduct history with the College be considered when they apply to the Midwifery Education Program (MEP) to become a preceptor? Are the proposed requirements clear? Is the standard achievable for all midwives? Is there anything missing?
This consultation will be open until Friday, November 12, 2021.
