The College continues to work towards expanded lists of the laboratory tests midwives can order and perform.
The College submitted an updated list of laboratory tests to the Ministry of Health in the spring of 2023. We are still in discussions with the Ministry about the next stage of this process and have recently received feedback from the Ministry. We responded in late November, 2023 with additional information about the tests we have proposed.
The College hopes this will be moving forward in the early new year and will advise midwives and the public when we have additional information as to when the Ministry will update Schedule 2 of the General Regulation under the Laboratory and Specimen Collection Centre Licensing Act, 1990.
