Say YES Training Module
Sponsored by TEAM for West Virginia Children and the CAMC Health Education Research Institute
The Say YES To Safe Sleep For Babies module is a training tool to be completed by providers and partners educating new and expectant parents and caregivers about infant safe sleep practices.This course qualifies for 1.5 hours of continuing education credit for physicians, nurses and social workers, and is approved for West Virginia STARS credits for early childhood professionals. This is a new web module and replaces the existing module. Staff of all Say YES partner organizations should review this new module. Please note the module may be viewed on any mobile device.
The course can be used for initial or continuing education training, and can be reviewed in parts with breaks, as needed. There are 2 parts to the module:
- Part 1 is What You Need to Know About Sleep Related Infant Deaths, and will cover definitions, research, data and recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Rachel Moon, Chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Task Force on SIDS and associate editor for the journal Pediatrics, presents this section.
- Part 2 provides an overview of West Virginia’s model, Say Yes To Safe Sleep For Babies, and reviews tools and messages providers can use to educate new and expectant parents and caregivers about keeping their babies safe while sleeping. This section is co-presented by Lee Ann Romeo, a registered nurse and childbirth educator at United Hospital Center, and Stephanie Barnett, a licensed social worker with the Ohio County Maternal Infant Health Outreach Program.
