Developmental Care CNE Module

Module 15: Infant-Sleep-Position Protocols 1.5 CNE contact hours

Enhance your developmental care studies with this online CNE learning module, which serves as a supplement to the Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants: A Guide for Health Professionals, second edition. Developed by the editors and authors of Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants: A Guide for Health Professionals, second edition, this module reinforces the most relevant and important aspects of developmental care.

If you are a nurse seeking to obtain the CNE contact hours, you should have read or studied the relevant portions of Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants, participated in another related course of study in developmental care, or draw upon your professional experience. Some learners may choose to use this learning module as a self-assessment tool. This self-study module includes a PDF with a brief written overview of one aspect of developmental care, a list of the related developmental care standards, several "points to remember," recommended supplemental readings, one or more reflective exercises, and one or more case studies. The learner must complete a post-test and an evaluation in order to receive the designated contact hours. This module is intended for nurses and occupational, physical, respiratory, and speech therapists.

This module is an aid and does not include an in-depth description of the subject matter. Instead, serves as a study guide that augments and builds on what learners are reading and studying or upon their professional experiences in developmental care as a means to promote understanding and retention.

Module Summary
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the most common cause of infant death after the first month of life, and the third-leading cause of overall infant mortality in the United States. The risk of SIDS is greatly increased when infants are positioned prone or side-lying for sleep, and when soft or loose bedding is used in the crib. To reduce the risk of SIDS, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that infants sleep supine on firm surfaces without soft or loose bedding. During the acute phase of illness and at younger gestational ages, critically ill neonates are provided with developmentally supportive sleep situations that include prone positioning and supportive containment with soft bedding. As these same neonates recover, convalesce, and mature towards discharge, it is essential to prepare them for the sleep position and environment that will minimize the risk of SIDS at home.
