Nurses are among the most trusted advisors and role models for families, especially on the subject of infant health and sleep safety. SIDS is the leading cause of death among infants from one month to one year of age, but there are ways to reduce the risk. Knowing SIDS risk-reduction techniques and how to communicate effectively with parents and other caregivers can help you make a difference in just a few minutes.
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and its partners developed a FREE continuing education (CE) program on SIDS risk reduction for nurses. Nurses who complete the course will receive 1.1 CE credit hours from the Maryland Nurses Association.
