About the Course

Candice Hamilton, Executive Director of the American Academy of Pediatrics, WV Chapter, provides opening remarks to the two-part module, which can be viewed incrementally, and on any mobile device.

Part 1, an Overview of Sleep Related Infant Deaths, is  presented by Dr. Rachel Moon, Chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Task Force on SIDS, and SIDS researcher at the University of Virginia, who covers the latest research and recommendations on infant safe sleep from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the impact of risk factors such as maternal smoking, and recent findings about the impact of social norms and social networks on the acceptance of safe sleep practices.

Part 2 focuses on the Campaign with Conversations Approach, a family centered model which integrates promotion of safe sleep and issues such as breastfeeding, and is presented by Dr. Suzanne Bronheim, Adjunct Associate Research Professor in the Department of Pediatrics within the Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development.  To highlight the concepts of the model, two brief vignettes are presented by Lee Ann Romeo, a registered nurse and childbirth educator at United Hospital Center, and Beverly Kitchen, a registered nurse and Regional Care Coordinator with Right From The Start.
