Promoting safe sleep with a SUDI workshop

The need to promote and continually reinforce safe sleep practices was the focus of a series of Sudden Unexpected Death (SUDI) in Infancy prevention workshops delivered across the district recently.

Around 80 health care professionals – district nurses, midwives, social workers among others – attended the workshops aimed at helping those who support parents of infants and their families to deliver clear and consistent messages and to make use of the resources available.
