On March 31, 2023 the College submitted to the Ministry of Health and posted on our website our 2022 College Performance Measurement Framework (CPMF) report.
To help midwives understand their reporting requirements, the College has created a new Mandatory Reporting Reference Tool for Midwives. This chart outlines common reporting scenarios, and provides information about when, how, and what information to include when making a report.
Read the College’s Resource for Midwives – Complaints and Investigations for more information on what midwives can expect should they be the subject of a complaint or investigation.
We are pleased to share that we are currently working with the Ministry of Health to develop an expanded list of laboratory tests that can be ordered by midwives. We are also in consultation with the ministry about the drugs midwives are able to prescribe and administer for their clients.
