Nurses play an important role in reducing the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep-related causes of infant death. Here we provide resources to help organizations inform their constituents about the Continuing Education (CE) Activity on Risk Reduction for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Other Sleep-Related Causes of Infant Death: Curriculum for Nurses.
The CE activity was developed by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), which leads the Safe to Sleep® campaign, and includes the latest safe infant sleep recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
This continuing education activity for nurses was approved by the Maryland Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation. Nurses will receive 1.1 contact hours of continuing education credit upon completing the online activity.
The NICHD encourages nurses and organizations to:
- Post an announcement on their websites.
- Publish the matte article in their print or e-newsletters.
- Distribute flyers at nursing events.
- Spread the word about the CE on their social media channels, using our sample social media content as a guide.
Please visit the Dissemination Resources section for more information. We hope that your organization will use these resources to make nurses aware of this important, potentially life-saving information.
Take the online CE.
