Dive Deep into Safe Sleep Guidelines

Three thousand six hundred infants die each year in the United States before their first birthday due to Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID). It is the leading cause of post-neonatal infant mortality, and NICU graduates are 2–3 times more likely to die compared with healthy term infants. It is critical for NICU staff to prepare families to maintain a safe sleep environment before and after hospital discharge.

Our Safe Sleep Symposium, supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Pampers, a member of the Procter and Gamble Family, brings you the latest findings on infant sleep safety in the NICU. Speaker Michael H. Goodstein, MD FAAP, will review safe sleep guidelines and explore how to apply this knowledge with culturally competent anticipatory guidance.

Make plans to attend this session at NANN Virtual on Wednesday, October 21, 2:45–4 pm!
