Updated Continuing Competencies Policy
April 24, 2016
Note: This article was originally posted in our April 2016 newsletter, and has not been updated.
The College’s Registration Regulation requires members to maintain ongoing competence in three areas: Neonatal Resuscitation, Obstetrical Emergency Skills and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. Previously, the requirements for these were outlined in three separate policies, and now have been merged into one revised policy in order to make the information more accessible.
Highlights of policy changes:
• Requirements for NRP include Advanced (all sections complete).
• Emergency skills section of the policy has been updated to include the currently accepted courses in Canada as well as the required skills that must be included in the course.
A full version of the Policy is available on our website.
