Professional Standards Survey Consultation

May 10, 2019

Note: This article was originally published in our Spring 2019 edition of our On Call newsletter, and has not been updated.

The College is looking for your feedback on the Professional Standards for Midwives, and the Consultation and Transfer of Care Standard.

The Professional Standards for Midwives (Professional Standards) were created as part of the College’s shift to a more principles-based approach that defines the fundamental ethical and professional standards that the College expects all practices and individual midwives to meet.

The Professional Standards came into effect on June 1, 2018. Now, a year after implementation, we are looking for your feedback on how these standards work in practice.  The College is also looking for feedback about the Consultation and Transfer of Care Standard (CTCS).

The CTCS came into effect on November 19, 2015 and defined the circumstances in which a midwife would need to initiate involvement of other health care providers in the care of a client or their newborn. The College is also asking for members’ feedback on how the CTCS works in practice.

The survey is comprised of seven questions and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. To access the survey and provide feedback, please click here.

The deadline to submit your feedback through the survey is June 1, 2019.
