To be approved by the Board, a continuing education program must cover one or more of the course of study subjects listed in 12 AAC 14.200 and directly relate to the clinical practice of midwifery. On April 26, 1994 the Board of Certified Direct-Entry Midwives adopted a code of ethics. The ethics can be read under Appendix B of the statutes and regulations. Under item number 2 in the code of ethics, midwives should strive continually to improve medical knowledge and skill.
The Alaska Board of Certified Direct-Entry Midwives has created a continuing education worksheet to guide licensees. This is a tool to assist you in management of your certificates.
