Nursing and Health Care Provider Education:

The national Safe to Sleep® campaign (formerly Back to Sleep), led by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), recently launched an updated free continuing education (CE) activity, Risk Reduction for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Other Sleep-Related Causes of Infant Death, now available online for nurses and health care providers to update their knowledge about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep related causes of infant death. The updated CE activity gathers the latest research on SIDS and other sleep-related causes of infant death and the safe sleep recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics into one place so that nurses and health care providers can learn risk-reduction practices quickly and easily. In addition to providing key messages that nurses can share with parents and caregivers, the updated CE activity also offers specific communication practices that nurses can easily incorporate into their work day. It is approved by the Maryland Nurses Association, an accredited approver of the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation, for 1.1 contact hours.
