- Midwifery knowledge, skills and scope of practice in safely administering medication and blood products
- Providing midwifery care in collaboration with other health professionals, for women and their babies, when pregnancy and/or labour and birth become complex
- The midwife’s role, responsibility, and accountability for recognition of and response to the deteriorating maternal patient and or fetus/ infant
- ANMAC Midwifery Professional Experiences (MPE) requirements
