The revised Registration standard: Endorsement for scheduled medicines for midwives and Safety and quality guidelines for privately practising midwives (SQG) take effect from 1 January 2017.
The standards and guidelines were revised after a scheduled review, which included public consultation. The NMBA has published consultation reports providing a summary of the consultation processes, rationale for any changes and proposed way forward, including areas where further work is planned.
The NMBA has also published a suite of supporting documents to facilitate a better understanding of the updated standards and guidelines. Please refer to NMBA’s Registration Standards page and Professional Codes & Guidelines page for additional information and resources.
Midwives with an endorsement for scheduled medicines and privately practising midwives will need to meet the obligations of the revised standard and guidelines from 1 January 2017.
