SIDS: Safe to Sleep logo

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.

This continuing nursing education activity was approved for 1.1 continuing education credits by the Maryland Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

Please select a link below to access the CE module as a printed booklet or as an online program.

Please note, we are in the process of updating this program to reflect the latest American Academy of Pediatrics safe infant sleep recommendations. We expect to have it completed later in 2013. The information presented is still accurate.
