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 is designed to inform pediatric, obstetric, and neonatal nurses—as well as nurses who educate families and caregivers about caring for infants—about the latest risk-reduction strategies for SIDS and other sleep-related causes of infant death. It includes updated information based on the latest recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics. It also aims to increase nurses' knowledge of effective and efficient ways to communicate risk-reduction information about SIDS and other sleep-related causes of infant death to parents and caregivers.

With the online version of this CE activity, there’s no waiting for tests to be scored and processed—nurses submit their work online and receive their credit certificate in just a few minutes. Because nurses often get called away from their computers to attend to patients, the online version remembers users’ progress and quickly and easily returns them to where they left off. Nurses can also access the online CE activity from any location to help maximize flexibility.

This free continuing nursing education activity was 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.
