Continuing Education Program on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Risk Reduction

Nurses play a critical role in communicating Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) risk-reduction techniques, especially in hospital settings. SIDS is one of the leading causes of infant death in the United States. Even though there's no known way to prevent SIDS completely, there are actions parents and caregivers can take to significantly reduce their babies' risk for SIDS.

The program is currently available free of charge. Nurses who successfully complete the course will earn 1.1 contact hours of continuing education credit from the Maryland Nurses Association, which is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center Commission on Accreditation as a continuing education provider.

Nurses can visit to access the CE module as a printed booklet or as an online program.
