At the March Council meeting, Council reviewed a draft version of the Scope of Practice Guide. This guide was developed at the direction of Council following the implementation of the Professional Standards for Midwives and upon launching Phase 2 of the College standards review.
Council agreed that the consultation on the Scope of Practice Guide should be paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic as they felt that midwives may be too overwhelmed to be able to take the necessary time to read through the guide and provide valuable feedback to the College.
The College has shared a draft of the guide with a few stakeholders for initial review and feedback and will provide an update to members at a later date for when the consultation will go live.
If members would like to review the draft Scope of Practice Guide, one was provided at the March Council meeting. Access the meeting materials here.
