Continuing Education Activity on Risk Reduction for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Other Sleep-Related Causes of Infant Death: Curriculum for Nurses
Some of your smallest patients, babies younger than 1 year of age, are at risk for SIDS and other sleep-related causes of infant death. But there are ways to reduce the risk.
This continuing education (CE) activity explains the latest research on SIDS, other sleep-related causes of infant death, and ways to reduce the risk of both of these types of deaths. The CE activity also outlines how you can communicate risk-reduction messages to parents and caregivers in just a few minutes.
Learn how to teach parents and caregivers to keep their babies safe and healthy so they can grow up to make a difference—just like you.
