Updated version - ICM Essential Competencies

18 October 2019

In August 2019 a further update was made to correct an error in competency 4e (skills and behaviours section) of the English version. Competency 4e was correct in the French and Spanish versions. At this time an additional skill was added to competency 2i to make clear that midwives in certain situations could perform abortions. This additional skill was previously included in the 2013 version of the ICM competencies. Minor edits were made to competency 3.b in October 2019 to emphasise the role of a midwife in preventing, detecting and stabilising complications.
