Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the unexpected, sudden death of a child under age 1 in which an autopsy does not show an explainable cause of death. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and Healthy Child Care America just released a new online training module on ‘Reducing the Risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in Child Care!’
Based on AAP's Reducing the Risk of SIDS in Child Care Speakers Kit, this is a FREE course that is designed to educate everyone who cares for babies, including child care providers, health care professionals, parents, grandparents, and relatives.
In one hour, participants will learn how to create a safe sleep environment to reduce the risk of SIDS and other sleep related deaths. With an easy to use format, this course is available 24/7 from your home or office computer. Childcare providers will receive a certificate of completion for 1.0 contact hour.
