National SIDS & Infant Death Program Support Center
Training and Education
The Training and Education work team has determined risk reduction and bereavement support training for community outreach workers to be a priority. They will develop model training components which can be inserted into the existing curricula used by groups such as Healthy Start, state/municipal health departments, Healthy Mothers/Healthy Babies, etc. The team has also identified other categories of professionals and para-professionals who should be trained about SIDS/ID issues. They will review existing training curricula and make exemplary curricula available through the Centers web site and mailings.
