College of Midwives of British Columbia — Medical Reference

The College of Midwives of British Columbia is the standards body for professional midwives in the province of BC. Its mission is to protect the public through regulation of registered midwives, to set standards of practice, to accredit midwifery education programs, and to address complaints.

We were initially approached by a board member to develop a web app that would make CMBC’s drug reference database accessible to midwives in the field on their mobile devices. Our recommendation was to develop the app as a mobile WordPress website so that this documentation could be easily updated by office staff and more standards documents could be added in the future.

The result is a simple but effective midwifery medical reference tool that may be accessed by anyone, anywhere, anytime.
