Queensland Health developed the Safe Infant Care to Reduce the Risk of Sudden Unexpected Deaths in Infancy Policy Statement and Guidelines (2008) to assist staff in the promotion of safe infant care practices in order to reduce the risk of sudden unexpected infant deaths and fatal sleeping accidents.
A computer learning program on safe infant sleeping is being used by Queensland Health to help reduce the risk of Sudden Unexpected Deaths in Infancy (SUDI), including SIDS. The resource has been developed by Queensland Health in partnership with SIDS and Kids Australia to increase knowledge of safe infant sleeping practices, thereby helping to reduce the rates of SUDI.
While designed primarily for use by Queensland Health staff, the learning resource is available to the broader community, including health care professionals, parents and child care professionals. The program has three modules that cover key risk factors for SUDI, current public health messages and supporting evidence.
