Quality Assurance Program Reminders

Note: This article was originally posted in our July 2018 newsletter, and has not been updated.
The deadline to complete the College’s Quality Assurance Program (QAP) requirements is October 1, 2018. You can log on to the member portal today to stay up-to-date with your QAP requirements.
Fetal Health Surveillance
Every three years members registered in the general or supervised class must complete a Fetal Health Surveillance (FHS) activity as part of the Quality Assurance Program (QAP). You can read the policy here.
The policy was implemented in 2015 which means that all members who were registered in the general or supervised class before October 1, 2015 must have completed an FHS activity by October 1, 2018. The activity can have occurred any time after October 1, 2015
We’ve received questions from midwives wondering if they are able to do only the online part of the Fundamentals of Fetal Health Surveillance, produced by the Canadian Perinatal Programs Coalition. Our policy states that the online portion of the Fundamentals of Fetal Health Surveillance, produced by the Canadian Perinatal Programs Coalition, is a College approved FHS activity.
All members registered in the general or supervised class must complete the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and submit a declaration of completion as part of your Quality Assurance Program (deadline October 1, 2018). The SAQ is available in the member portal and can be completed at any time. Members do not submit their SAQ but only submit a declaration of completion.
More information about the SAQ can be found on our website here.
