Reminder! Please take the time to share your thoughts about the proposed changes to the Designated Drug Regulation. Feedback will be accepted until November 13.
The College supports expanding the list of drugs and substances that midwives are able to prescribe and administer, as we know it will improve client care. As we’ve shared before, we will continue to work with the Ministry to find a sustainable solution for clients to continue to receive optimal care by midwives as medication treatment evolves.
We are encouraging midwives and members of the public to share their feedback with the Ministry about the expanded list and hope that midwives will share any additional drugs or substances that would benefit clients in their care.
