dc.description.abstractSudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) continues to be an ongoing health problem as it caused the death of approximately 1,600 infants in 2015. The aim of this thesis and research study was to examine at-risk populations, the factors that increase and decrease the risk of SIDS, educational needs, and the associated nursing implications. The thesis consists of a literature review focusing on literature within the past five years, as well as a research study conducted to investigate areas where further education on SIDS prevention is needed. The research study was a self-reported survey examining practices that parents and caregivers of infants do that increase and decrease the risk of SIDS. The survey was distributed on social media through the Qualtrics program, and responses were collected from October 31st, 2017 to November 14th, 2017. Results of the study found that there was an increased compliance rate with American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations on SIDS prevention in comparison to other research studies. Areas in need of further education, such as the use of pacifiers while the infant is sleeping, were also identified.en_US
