Consultation documents for moving to HPA
The College of Midwives of Alberta (CMA) is working with the Government of Alberta to transition our profession to the Health Professions Act (HPA).
As part of the transition to the HPA, the CMA has requested that Registered Midwives’ Scope of Practice be expanded to reflect the professions’ education and training to enable Registered Midwives work to their full scope of practice.
At this time, the expansion to Midwifery Scope of Practice is in progress and the CMA is working with Alberta Health to establish standards of practice and competency for these new expansion areas. Until these have been approved and verified Midwives may not conduct care involving the new scope of practice.
