Celebrating International Day of the Midwife

As experts in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care, midwives support expectant parents and babies with skill and dedication. May 5, 2023 is a day to recognize the essential role you play in nurturing healthy families.

Through the delivery of evidence-based, client-centered maternity and newborn care, your efforts make a difference in the lives of so many British Columbians. Thank you.

Cultural safety & humility video series

To help nurses and midwives understand and apply the Indigenous Cultural Safety, Cultural Humility and Anti-Racism practice standard, BCCNM collaborated with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC on a series of videos. This month, we're highlighting the video on creating safe health-care experiences.


Inquiry, Discipline, and Monitoring updates

BCCNM publishes a variety of professional conduct notices on its website. These notices include consent agreements, Discipline Committee and Inquiry Committee notices, and Inquiry and Discipline hearing notices. While all of these notices are public information, only exceptional outcomes (i.e., Inquiry Committee order, Discipline order, hearing outcome) and circumstances (i.e., discipline hearing) are highlighted in registrant newsletters.
