Quality Assurance Reporting will NOT be required for 2022
The College’s Quality Assurance activities are designed to ensure that the knowledge, skill, and judgment of Ontario midwives remains current throughout their careers, and that they continue to provide safe, effective, appropriate, and ethical midwifery care to their clients. Quality assurance is mandated under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991. Its components can be found under the Quality Assurance Regulation (O. Reg. 669/20) made under the Midwifery Act, 1991.
Quality Assurance activities are intended to be supportive in nature. They are meant to promote and enhance members’ understanding of the practice of the profession of midwifery through:
- Self-Assessment and Professional Development Activities (Professional Development Portfolio).
- Peer and Practice Assessment.
