An online version of  the National Insistutes of Health's (NIH) continuing education program for nurses about SIDS risk reduction is now available.

The Continuing Education Program on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Risk Reduction was developed by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) in collaboration with national nursing and health organizations.

The program reviews the most current research findings about SIDS and provides nurses with practical approaches to help new parents and care givers reduce the risks of SIDS by creating a safe sleep environment for their infants.

Nurses can access the online version or order copies of the print version at, or by calling 1-800-370-2943.

Nurses who successfully complete the course earn 1.1 contact hours from the Maryland Nurses Association, which is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. The online module automatically grades responses to the post-test questions and provides nurses with real-time completion results.
