Participate in the 2011 AMCB Task Analysis Survey
The American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB) Task Analysis survey is open through November 22, 2011. Midwives certified by AMCB since September 1, 2008, have been sent an e-mail inviting them to complete the online survey along with a link to access the Web site. If you did not receive an e-mail and would like to participate, please contact Carrie Bright, AMCB executive director, at firstname.lastname@example.org to verify your e-mail address. Upon completion of the survey, participants will have the annual fee ($65.00) for participating in the CMP (Certificate Maintenance Program) waived.
Created by AMCB and conducted every five years, the 2011 Task Analysis Survey, describes tasks performed by CNMs and CMs who have been certified within the last three years. This survey aims to identify tasks newly certified midwives actually perform, which helps AMCB make the certifying examination reflective of these tasks.
Recent graduates are being asked to complete an online survey which details tasks done in clinical midwifery practice and to identify how they manage varied clinical conditions. The survey should take no more than an hour to complete. By participating in this survey,CNMs and CMs will be providing a valuable service to the midwifery profession.
