The Safe Infant Sleeping e-learning education package is an online course for health professionals that provides an introduction to current evidence-based information about sudden unexpected deaths in infancy, fatal sleeping accidents, and the infant care practices demonstrated to reduce the risk of infant death.

The Safe Infant Sleeping e-learning education package has been developed in partnership with Queensland Health and Red Nose. Professor Jeanine Young of the Red Nose National Scientific Advisory Group has driven the process and worked closely with all parties including the Queensland Government Skills Development Centre. The program is available for health professionals including midwives, nurses, allied health and medical staff, Indigenous Health workers, parents, carers and childcare workers.

The package is under review to make it relevant to each state and territory and will soon be available through the Red Nose website. Currently, the package is available at the link below.


The Safe Infant Sleeping education package is available at no cost to health professionals, carers and childcare workers by registering here.

This workshop is endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing, Australia (ACN) according to approved criteria.
