NICHD Launches Online SIDS Curriculum for Nurses
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) is now offering an online version of its Continuing Education (CE) Program on SIDS Risk Reduction. The curriculum is designed to inform pediatric, obstetric and neonatal nurses—as well as nurses who educate families and caregivers about caring for infants—of the latest risk-reduction strategies for SIDS. It also helps to increase nurses' knowledge of ways to communicate SIDS risk-reduction information to parents and caregivers. Nurses who successfully complete the curriculum will receive credit for 1.1 contact hours. The curriculum is accredited by the Maryland Nurses Association* and is available free of charge. The online module automatically grades responses to the post-test questions and provides nurses with real-time completion results. To learn more, visit here.
