    "The Code of Professional Conduct for Midwives in Australia is a set of expected national standards of professional conduct for midwives in Australia. It is supported by, and should be read in conjunction with its companion code, the Code of Ethics for Midwives in Australia and the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council National Competency Standards for the Midwife. These three documents, together with other published practice standards (eg decision-making frameworks, guidelines and position statements), provide a framework for accountable and responsible midwifery practice in all clinical, management,education and research domains."
