What you'll learn in this expert session

Research shows that safe sleeping practices are more often followed when parents and caregivers receive consistent and evidence-based information and resources from health professionals. The incidence of SUDI (Sudden and Unexpected Death in Infancy) has reduced dramatically following the identification of modifiable risk factors and parents adopting a change in their infant sleeping practices. Join us to understand SUDI; the Triple Risk Factor and the latest to assist parents to understand the risks and how to sleep their infant safely.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define SUDI and categorise its causes
  • Explain the Triple Risk Theory
  • Identify unsafe sleep and settling practices
  • Recommend safe sleeping practices to families
