Preterm infants are at much higher risk for sleep-associated death than full term infants. Yet, they are much less likely to be placed in safe sleep positions or environments. This presentation will describe several interventions that seek to improve safe sleep practices among preterm infants.
1. Describe the epidemiology of SUID and safe sleep practices for the general US infant population and for preterm infants.
2. Describe clinical research, quality improvement, and implementation science approaches to improving safe infant sleep practices.
3. Describe the critical role of families in NICU safe infant sleep quality improvement efforts.
