Curriculum for nurses: Continuing education program on SIDS risk reduction
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 1 month to 1 year of age. Knowing SIDS risk-reduction techniques and how to communicate effectively with parents and other caregivers can help nurses make a difference.
Developed by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and its partners, this program on SIDS risk reduction provides nurses 1.1 continuing education credit hours from the Maryland Nurses Association.
This course includes a round-table discussion with four experts in the field of maternal and child health. The goal of the activity is to discuss the challenges associated with the diagnosis and management of late preterm birth. Upon completion of the 30-minute activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify the factors that contribute to the rising rate of late preterm births and non-medically indicated inductions prior to 39 weeks.
- Identify the potential short- and long-term consequences of births occurring between 34 and 38 weeks of gestation.
- Integrate best practice evidence-based guidelines for delivery prior to 39 weeks.

S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the six assessment parameters taught in the course: sugar, temperature, airway, blood pressure, lab work, and emotional support. This program is the first neonatal education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick newborns. This valuable, accessible and easy-to-remember resource serves as a concise guide for organizing the myriad details and interventions necessary for stabilizing a sick infant. First introduced in the United States and Canada in May 1996, this program has rapidly grown in popularity, with more than 100,000 learner-participants to date! Translated into other languages, including Spanish, S.T.A.B.L.E. has expanded to more than 25 countries.
