Continuing Education Activity for Nurses Aims to Reduce Sudden Infant Death

safe to sleep logo

NINR and the Safe to Sleep® campaign, led by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development with other collaborators, recently partnered to update a continuing education (CE) activity for nurses, Risk Reduction for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Other Sleep-Related Causes of Infant Death.

The activity informs pediatric, obstetric, and neonatal nurses; nurse practitioners; nurse specialists and nurse-midwives about the latest research and risk-reduction strategies for SIDS and other sleep-related causes of infant death. The activity can help refresh knowledge for nurses who educate family members and caregivers about caring for infants. It explains ways nurses can communicate risk-reduction messages to parents and caregivers without adding to their already busy schedules. The activity describes modeling safe infant sleep practices immediately after delivery and encourages parents and caregivers to continue these practices at home.

The CE activity is accredited by the Maryland Nurses Association, an accredited approver of continuing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Tulane University Center for Public Service: Understanding Your Program: How a Simple “Program Roadmap” Can Make Planning and Evaluation More Useful workshop, October 8th, 9am – 12pm

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for your interest in the  Understanding Your Program: How a Simple “Program Roadmap” Can Make Planning and Evaluation More Useful workshop on Monday, October 8th, 9:00 am-12:00 pm at the Small Center, 1725 Baronne Street.  You may park in the lot at Baronne and Euterpe. Breakfast will be served.
Description: Everyone is under pressure to show the impact of their efforts.  Why not use an approach that not only helps you make the case to funders and stakeholders, but, in the process, gives you the understanding YOU need to make immediate improvements to your efforts.  Tom Chapel, who is the Chief Evaluation Officer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and has been helping public and non-profit programs do planning and evaluation for several decades, is returning to repeat his series of popular workshops.

We look forward to seeing you then!

Amanda Buberger

Satisfied in His Presence

As the deer pants for water, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for God, the living God. Where can I find him to come and stand before him? Psalm 42: 1, 2

This passage is believed to be written by David, an Old Testament saint, who was often afflicted and just as often rescued by God’s sovereign grace. David was a believer but often faced persecution, peril and depression. As a believer, he never lost his hope in God nor his longing to be in the presence of God. For David, the presence of God was always available in the temple. He said in another place that he longed to be in his courts, meaning in the temple, the house of God. He wanted desperately to be in God’s presence. He said:

Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
Psalm 84:10
