Japanese Nursing Association has published a leaflet, the latest version of "Midwifery in Japan (2015)".

In the leaflet, you can find the information about maternal health statistics and policies, and midwifery regulation and education in Japan.

Guidelines for the Development of Disaster Preparedness Manuals for Delivery Facilities

The guidelines are intended to provide clues for people who prepare manuals required in the event of disaster at delivery facilities. They cover an approximately three-month period from the occurrence of a disaster and consist of the following contents.

  • Preparation of a manual for daily preparedness;
  • Preparation of a manual required immediately following a disaster;
  • Preparation of a manual required for providing medium- and long-term support.

We would be grateful if you could make good use of them.

Guidelines for Applying Clinical Ladder of Competencies for Midwifery Practice (CLoCMiP)

The stagnant acquisition of practical midwifery ability is caused by external environmental factors in the perinatal medical care service systems, and by the resultant internal environmental factors. Taking into account the situations, in 2012, JNA developed and released nationwide the 窶廚areer Paths for Midwives窶 and the 窶廚linical Ladder of Competencies for Midwifery Practice (CLoCMiP)窶. The guidelines have been utilized to develop and strengthen practical competencies of midwives in Japan.

As a Level III certification in the CLoCMiP was commenced, we hope that the guidelines will be further utilized.
