Provision of Clinical Information

This component of the QAP allows the CMBC Quality Assurance (QA) Committee to request specific, de-identified information relating to the care given by midwives to clients, to assess for themes in practice or prescribing patterns. For an example of how this component of the QAP can be used, the QA Committee required midwives to seek peer review and maintain a log on their first three inpatient orders and first three outpatient prescriptions when midwives were first given the authority to prescribe controlled substances as per the Standards for Prescribing, Ordering and Administering Controlled Substances.
