Quality accreditation standards are the foundation of the accreditation system developed by ANMAC. All of our standards are reviewed to ensure they are contemporary and aligned with Australian and international best practice. The standards are reviewed in line with the Protocol for the review and development of accreditation standards.
The Midwife Accreditation Standards (2014) (760 KB) are under review. The standards are used to assess and accredit entry to practice Midwife programs of study.
In order to allow sufficient time for further consultation about the proposal to include educational preparation for prescribing in entry to practice midwifery programs, ANMAC will submit Draft Midwife Accreditation Standards (425 KB) to the NMBA, they do not include the educational preparation for prescribing.
