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 1 month to 1 year of age, but there are ways to reduce the risk.  Knowing risk-reduction practices SIDS and other sleep-related causes of infant death 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 (NICHD) and its partners offer this free CE activity for nurses about reducing the risk of SIDS and other causes of sleep-related infant death, based on the most recent recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics. The activity was updated in late 2015.

This free continuing education activity is approved by the Maryland Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation. Nurses who successfully complete it will earn 1.1 contact hours of continuing education credit.
