New Quality Assurance requirements for midwives

Jan 7, 2022

​Beginning in 2022, midwives registered with BCCNM will complete an annual self-assessment questionnaire as part of registration renewal. The questionnaire is based on the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics and is an opportunity for midwives to complete a thorough assessment of their practice.

The questionnaire includes two items relating to cultural safety and humility. BCCNM has provided a preliminary list of cultural safety and humility resources​ to support nurses and midwives in their practice.

We encourage midwives to review the questionnaire before they begin their registration renewal, and reflect on their answers.
